He goeth forth bearing precious seed and shall doubtless come again with rejoicing...Psalm 126: 6

He found the seed
That he did seek...
Knowing it was good;
He couldn't stop at one.
The bird with his red hood,
Ate til he was done.
The Cardinal will return again;
Maybe next time with a friend.

Poetry by me, AJP

This is another picture of the male cardinal that I shot on the 10th just before he left the feeder...I sat at a lower angle with my camera and found it was easier to manual focus with my telephoto lens where I wasn't catching the reflective glare quite as much through the two window panes and plastic sheeting we used to weatherize the storm window...

The cardinal didn't appear as skittish either when I was sitting at his level than if I were standing over him. That is understandable when you think of it...We humans are giants compared to these little birds and we might behave the same way if we traded places for a day...If we can gain their trust it is the best feeling in the world.
