Northern Cardinal

This female cardinal landed at my birdfeeder today, and stayed long enough for me to get some pictures. (Some of them may look blocky or pixelly because I was taking the photos through my window screen)

She seemed to be aware that I was nearby, but didn't seem to mind. Whenever I moved though, the crest would rise up on top of her head.

She intermittently hopped over to my window sill with a beak full of seeds, and would drop them in a little pile and eat them one at a time. She was so close, I could hear her feet on the sill and see each feather on her wings.

This picture was taken just a few seconds before she flew away.

Happy Birding!
