A sower went forth to sow...Some seeds fell by the way side and the birds came and devoured them up...St. Matthew 13:3- 4

I very quickly grabbed this shot before the blue jay chased the cardinal off the feeder immediately after I clicked the shutter button. I would have liked to have got more poses of them when they were that close through the window but I didn't get a second chance and knew from experience they wouldn't stay together long.

We saw lots of birds today flying back and forth on the feeder and it kept me busy refiling the feeder with more seeds. The birds of course have more of an appetite with the bitter cold weather we are having..

Thank you so much Geoff Plant for your kind spotlight on 1/12/2016...Very much appreciated!!!

    This is a fantastic capture, you know the birds very well and you knew that the Blue Jay would chase away the Cardinal so you grabbed a photo of them quickly, hoping for more poses and that did not happen. I know that the birds know where to get fed year round at your feeders and especially when it is snowy and well below freezing
