Common Bird, Uncommon Beauty

The Northern Cardinal is a common bird where I live, so common that it is easy to forget how beautiful they are.  Just look at this fellow –

I sometimes wonder what my reaction would be if I was seeing him for the very first time.  A common bird of uncommon beauty!

  1. I don’t see them too too often, but they are one of my top faves! Maybe because red is my favorite color too. 🙂

    Yep, I am also guilty of taking this beautiful bird (and the American robin) for granted, just because they are so common.
