Female Northern Cardinal

Female Northern Cardinal
(Cardinalis cardinalis)

Because of the wide-angle lens on our camera, about the only way we can photograph birds is by luring them within 18" of the camera using a tray feeder right outside the window. I finally got around to re-installing the tray feeder yesterday.

More info on Northern Cardinals from Cornell.

Those feeders are great for studying the birds and catching good photos, aren't they? Yours is a lovely lady.

Love the seed in her mouth! One of the nice things about being stuck inside during the winter is that I finally have time to watch the birds!
