Northern Cardinal

Northern Cardinal Cardinalis cardinalis
26 January 2013

    As I was leaving home this morning to run some errands I was surprised to hear a male cardinal in full vocal repertoire. It certainly seems very early to be engaged in this kind of performance, but it was quite wonderful, especially after the bitterly cold spell we have just experienced. Today was sunny with little wind and a high temperature of around minus four degrees - very pleasant indeed.
