Today was another cold one here in Ohio. It continued to lightly snow and most people stayed warm and toasty in their homes. The birds, however, were out and about this morning enjoying a nice winter morning. While I was out enjoying the cool, snowy weather myself, I stumbled into a bird paradise. Birds were everywhere and they were not of the shy variety. They flew above and around me. They even strolled past me on the ground. It seemed they were aiming to put on a fabulous show for me and my camera.
The cardinals were the friendliest. They loved showing off their red winter coats. They dived in and out of sight and over and under fences. Their personalities were as vibrant as their color. Of course all the talk was of the Ravens and their chance of winning the Super Bowl. They had no choice but to root for the bird team. They got their wish.
To get a much better view of the birds, click on the photo.

One of my favorit things on cold winter days! Watch the birdies on
feedstation. Actually there were over twenty varying kinds of birds..
We have a lot of beautiful birds in my part of the country but we don’t have cardinals. I miss them a lot after years in the east. These photos are beautiful and warm the heart like a Valentine. Thank you!
Thanks. They are beautiful to see, especially against the white earth.
Amazing pictures Seth, especially the first and the last one ..
Thanks again Sonu. 🙂

Seth, have you checked this out? http://antidull.com
I have not but I’ll look into it. Thanks so much.
WOW! Fantastic – you captured the beauty of the cardinals, especially Carmichael showing off his wings, Fred & Fancy and Charles chilling!
🙂 Thanks. Glad you like the gang.
Simply beautiful…Carmichael seems to be a bit mischievous. Playing “hide-and-go-seek” with Junior…☺
I think ornery is a better description. 😉 thanks.
Great, great, great! Well done!

Thank you so much for the lovely pictures! I love the cardinal pictures, I am especially fond of them. I have a story of a special cardinal that knocked on my window and I believe was a message from my grandfather. It is on my blog…
Wow, I’ll have to find it.
I miss cardinals. We don’t have them on the west coast.
I’ll send you some. 🙂

Seth, I love the names! So cute! These are remarkable shots! Love them 🙂
Thanks again Judy.
You are so fortunate! The few birds we see are so shy that if we make the slightest move are sound they are gone in a flash — I can’t get a decent picture of any of them except our resident robin. Very nice photos — makes your area look like it’s teeming with life!
I have to move very slowly. It’s hard for a big boy like me not to scare them.
Your photographer/art is breathtaking! Brilliance should be rewarded so that is why I added you to my list of nominees for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award! http://karensunhumbleopinion.com/2013/02/07/the-very-inspiring-blogger-award-nominee-me/
