Life is better with friends. 

Yes. Yes it is.

With the birds on their way south for the winter, 
my feeder hasn't been a popular place lately. 
This image was taken while the weather was still warm. 
I miss all the activity of my bird friends and seeing so 
many pretty colors flitting around outside the window. 
Over the winter, we will still have cardinals, though. 
I look forward to capturing their brilliance, 
hopefully (!!!) against the snow.

What kind of birds do you have in the winter?

  1. Sweet shot!
    I feed a little in the summer but have started putting out my winter feeders.
    The cardinals against the snow or bare branches is a favorite attempt for me.
    Along with them I'll have red-bellies, nuthatches, downys.....
    Lovely blog!

    1. I'm going to have to pay more attention this year. Maybe I have more than just cardinals in the winter! Thanks for coming by, Carletta. Have a blessed week.

  2. Lovely photography of nature's gem ~ I still have 'sea gulls' ~ LOL ~ and the cardinals I believe ~ others? am not sure ~ Happy Day to you ~ carol ^_^
    Thanks for visiting ~

  3. What a perfect quote for that beautiful image.

  4. I often read of cardinals in the Cat Mystery Books by Lilian Jackson Braun.
    They do not live with us, I only saw them in pictures so far ...
    We have in winter many hungry blackbirds, sparrows, robins, greenfinches, tits ... also firecrest, juniper bluebirds and other birds of forest come in flocks to the gardens.
    Now at this time are the large flocks of crossbills - I hear they make noise in neighbors large Japanese firs ... But they move on, just like the cranes and snow geese high above us. Here in the Harz Mountains is a resting and collective space. They circle for hours.
    I often stand down and hear them call, they see draw...

    And various types of crows and magpies are coming in town.

  5. Beautiful shot of these feathered friends and I love that quote about friendship... Thank you for coming by to share on Rurality Blog Hop #37!

  6. Beautiful shot of these beautiful birds and the quote is just perfect.

  7. This is such a beautiful post, sweet Anne. Life truly is better with friends and I'm glad I can call you my friend :) Thinking of you!

  8. Love this shot. So serene. Male cardinals are stunning birds, with lovely songs. I delighted in their visits when I lived in Ohio.


I am so delighted that you've taken time to come by and comment. Blessings for a joy-filled day!
