The Cardinals (no not the ones from Arizona)
Look closely in the picture (click to enlarge) and you will find four (4) male and two (2) female cardinals in our yard. I don't think I have ever seen so many cardinals together at one time. One male is peeking out from behind the pig statue, another is to the left of the shed on the wood rack while the other two are visible on the fence and in the snow. Thee is one female in the feeder and one on the ground next to the male.
It's unusual to see so many males so close together as they are fairly territorial. My husband did a great job of capturing so many at one time. I must tell you that the day before, there were five males hanging out there.
