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?

A profile...


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.
A "clear" Black-capped Chickadee "on the run".

Nice shots of one of my favorite birds. By the way you can search your blog by using the search feature on the navigation bar. Works well.

Thanks Hilke, for the info on the search! After conducting a search...those are first photos of a Cardinal.
