Cardinals abound

Neighbor.

I spotted this familiar bird half a block from home this morning.

The male Northern Cardinal is perhaps responsible for getting more people to open up a field guide than any other bird. They’re a perfect combination of familiarity, conspicuousness, and style: a shade of red you can’t take your eyes off.

A pair of cardinals has discovered my backyard bird bath. They are also building a nest in the lemon bamboo near the bird bath. I will be keeping an eye on them and trying to get some pics.
