We’ve had a great response to the black oil seeds we’ve been putting on the porch rail, with lots of celebrity guests. I think that’s a red-bellied woodpecker on top, and our flashy friend the cardinal.
I’m trying to get a good shot of my favorite celebrity, the lady cardinal, because she’s even more beautiful than the male, though not as flashy.
Once I saw the male cardinal feed the lady cardinal. It looks like they’re kissing.
All that color on our porch has attracted another celebrity visitor, too, a horned owl. He was too far away to photograph.
