Ok. I finally did it. I captured the illusive Red Cardinal in action. I LOVE Cardinals, and I hear them singing (maybe it’s only one in particular) every morning outside my window (or from my roof) before the sun comes out, so I’ve not been able to grab some good photos!
But, this morning, I was at the right place at the right time (and had my camera, and was “stalking” them). However, the cardinals were NOT in my yard, but in the neighbors. What’s up with THAT? Well, regardless, the stalking can come in handy and I got some great shots. (unless you are wanting to be in a relationship and end up being “the stalker” — not good.).
I also got a shot of TWO Red Cardinals. I know that birds often come in pairs, but these are TWO MALES…. I did see what the commotion was about, as there was a female in this same general location shortly after I took this shot… Can we say “competition?”
Anyway, if you have never heard a cardinal sing, listen to this video.
