New Kid on the Block

 
I've lived in this home
for 11 years now
and I've always enjoyed the cardinals.
This is the first time, however,
that I've been lucky enough to enjoy
the company of a young one.
 
I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
He obviously entertained me for quite some time!
 









 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 







 
 
 Maybe I entertained him just a little bit too.

they are cute in their browns, then when their red spottiness sets in, it always reminds me of teenage acne. :)

He is cute. We are fortunate to have a Cardinal family living within our tree. I agree they are entertaining to watch.

Isn't it funny how the female is that color and the male is such a beautiful red?

Paula said...

Awww how sweet! We too are lucky to have cardinals here in town and at the ranch but I don't think I have ever seen a very young one.
