The dramatic lighting of this beautiful bird is the result of an almost totally overcast sky, the sun peeking through clouds on the low western horizon and backlighting Mrs. Cardinal, topped off with freshly-fallen snow reflecting the sun from below.

The tables are turned! 
Same tree, same branch, same blind location, one year later...  This year, it was the Cardinals' turn to out-number the Bluejays. This picture was captured on
March 8, 2008 during a snow storm that dumped 14" on our feeders.  I photographed this scene all day.  At any one time, there were 50 to 80 Cardinals present.  There are more pictures to come...

Wow!!!  We're having fun with the Cardinal Convention!
You should see it in a 32 x whatever or 40 x 54 on canvas!
To quote our framer:  "It's awsome!!!"

When it starts snowing, especially towards the end of the day, the cardinals congregate in our front yard.  One-by-one, they dive-bomb the feeder, returning to eat supper on their perches.  This scene sometimes lasts for one half hour or more.  These are fast flitters, so you better count fast before one leaves the picture!  An occasional junco or sparrow joins the feast.  The guy in the upper left was getting ready to jump for the feeder as the shutter snapped.  The lighting was rather dim, so the birds on the closest branches are out of focus.  The lens I had on the camera was too long to get the shot in one frame, so this image is actually two pictures spliced together.  Can you find the seam?
