Northern Cardinal

(Toledo, OH) I heard this colorful bird long before I located him, and I spent quite a few minutes trying to get close enough to take a decent picture of one of the numerous Northern Cardinals that live near my house. Our bird feeders sometimes seem to double as swing sets for these birds in their athletic pursuit of the seed that I provide.

Cardinals, despite their ubiquitousness, remain among my favorite songbirds, and I consider my day to be privileged when a pair of these beautiful birds visits my yard.

No, perhaps "blessed" is a better word.
