Right in the center of the photo is a female cardinal. They are the most active besides the sparrows and the blue jays this time of year. They love to eat at dusk, but lately because of the cold The Herbal Husband has been showering them with extra food and treats. They are in sharp contrast with their colorful feathers in the snowy landscape. They do eat in pairs with the male standing guard while the female eats away. In the evenings we have had up to eight pairs dining in the twilight. We got a bit more shoveling done. Hopefully we won't have to shovel again tomorrow and then we are in for a warm up come Tuesday into Wednesday. Back to the 50's! Going to see Bill Murray in his portrayal of FDR in Hyde Park on Hudson tomorrow. Will let you know what I think. Hope you are having a great day. I think it's time of tea. Talk to you later.
