Cardinal with Bokeh, originally uploaded by Uncle Phooey.

Such brilliant plumage this time of year!
The photo is from flickr but it may well have been the same cardinal looking for a new nest.
He was scouting out my backyard - hope he moves in!

The photo above led me to this collection of cardinal photos.

Usually the males are the more spectacular, but with cardinals I think the females are just as gorgeous.

We do have a pair of sparrows nesting in the backyard birdhouse, but it has been proving to be a real challenge trying to catch a glimpse, let alone grab a photo.

I'll have to stake out some early morning with coffee and camera in hand.

When it's warmer.

By then, maybe there will be chicks...
