The gray and chilly weather made today seem perfect for…well…chili! And for taking bird pictures, of course.
So after a warm and delicious bowl of the aforementioned for lunch, paired with some Tuscan garlic bread the lady from Publix talked me into, I bundled up and went out on the deck with my camera. There was quite a flurry of activity at the feeders, but I’ll just share a few of the birds that haven’t made as many appearances on posts lately.
The Warblers were some of the first to arrive…a Yellow-rumped followed by a male and a female Pine Warbler.
Then a Thrasher popped in with a peanut he took to the water dish.
The birds that were out in abundance this afternoon were the Cardinals. They were all over the place. I love the subtle beauty of the female…
…but the male Cardinal was by far the most brilliant bird against the day’s rather dull backdrop.
Dull lighting? Perhaps. But never a dull moment with all the bird activity!

These lovely birds certainly cheer up a cold drab day.
you do get the best bird photos Kathy! I, too, am partial to the female cardinal’s subtle beauty 🙂
They are so lovely I have to paint them 💕🎨😍
I hope to see a real Cardinal bird some day! ❤️❤️❤️
I hope you do too!
They are all beautiful birds but I really like the Pine Warbler.
The male cardinal is a flashy fellow in his red coat, but I admire the female even more.
Her beauty is mesmerizing. 🙂
I agree, Kathy.
