We woke up to it snowing this morning ..I liked how she chose an open spot on the branch today where the twigs weren't covering her when I knelt down by the window to shoot this picture!

I don't know if this is the same female cardinal who formed a habit of attacking her reflection in the window last July who gradually stopped the habit thankfully and has not done it since. They are normally a timid bird as a rule. This one seems very docile with a sweet nature.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

Thank you so much with appreciation, Heather Mellon for nominating my cardinal photo on 12/12/2017!

    Thank you Andrew, I appreciate your comments...Cardinals are beautiful birds and this one happened to be posing in the right place for her to be shown clearly without twigs covering her,
