They are so beautiful, aren't they. This year we have pine grosbeaks. The males are a beautiful red. Haven't been able to get a good picture yet.

Thank you. I've never seen one of those but looking forward to a picture if you can get it.

The male that was at our feeder today had really dark back feathers. Beautiful red but lot of black back feathers. I thought they were usually lighter like your pic.

I was told that if the winter is cold the bird's feathers get darker to help hold the heat in. :-) :-) :-)

you seen the Cardinal at the feeder?
A couple of weeks ago i texted my younger sister to wish her Happy Birthday. She had texted me back a few times then asked if dad has paid me a visit lately, (he died in 2008 that's another story), and that he came to her in the form of a Cardinal. I thought at the time she may have smoked to much of that grass she likes, a few days went by and i came across this article about the Cardinal.

Actually, I was hoping to see a cardinal to take a picture of for my mother-in-law. She just loves them. I've been able to send her a few framed pictures, which she says she proudly displays on her shelf by the television, so she sees them all the time. Thanks for the reminder though - it reminds me of a former next door neighbor who's since passed and just loved them. I used to think of her when I saw a cardinal, but over time I've forgotten her.
Here are a couple more.[image][image]
