Somewhere under snow

I’ll dig till I find!

Great picture of the Cardinal, Eileen. I always feed my birds much more when the weather is so bad. The male Cardinal really stands out in this kind of weather, doesn't he???

Hugs,
Betsy

Hi Eileen, aren't you glad that cardinals like the snow. And it makes them look sooooooo much redder!
Happy RT! Thank you for peeking in on my Italy stuff and leaving your nice comment.

The cardinals are so pretty, great close ups Eileen. Their bright colors really stand out against the snow. I wish we had them here but I have yet to see one in this area.

Poor bird, he must be freezing, with such a red colour against the white snow, I hope he is not easily spotted and hunted.

Cardinals are such a delight to see for me. Today I will take this beautiful sight with me in thought and smile. I hope he has a nice warm home somewhere to get out of that cold, cold weather and has plenty to eat.

One of my favorite birds. They look so beautiful in the snow. Great photos!

I love the contrast of cardinals against white snow. I wonder if you will see babies in the spring!

They are beautiful birds! Especially splashed across a white background. :) Lovely!

Beautiful, and quite striking on the white of the snow! So different to my one in the Doha (Qatar) desert trip I did late last year!
