I can't remember ever posting a photo of a Northern Cardinal on this blog, perhaps I have, but I am too lazy to review all my posts, beginning in April of 2007. One landed near my feeding station this afternoon and I happened get a few shots:
Looking for predators?
Nearly a full body shot...
You can see the house in the bird's eye
Looking like Mr. Magoo.
Finally the whole bird.
I shot these through my scope and the shutter speed was fairly low, I snapped the photo below as the bird flew...looking almost like it would leave its feet behind.
