I went back to my archives, for these photos, of the Northern Cardinal. While camping at Stephen B. Austin State Park near Katy, Texas, earlier this year, we were entertained watching them swing on these vines. I can’t wait to see them again along our route heading south.

Too Funny…bad hair day! Me, too! I missed my 10/4 appt. in FL but I don’t want to go anywhere else so it’s getting long and wild looking. Flights home arrived 11/5…..see you in FL!
Karla, so glad to hear you are heading home! I bet you will be glad and so will Larry. I hope Mom is doing as well as can be expected. Can’t wait to see you guys. Love and hugs!
Love these birds, Sheila! They are so skittish, hard for me to get their picture….I’ll just look at yours!!
Hi Barb! They are pretty special birds. Having grown up in Louisiana these guys were everywhere. They have such with beautiful songs. Their range doesn’t reach Colorado, so I only get to see them when traveling south. They sure were having fun on this day, landing on the long vines and swings around.
The blurred backgrounds against the sharp clarity of the birds is fantastic. Beautiful pictures! 🙂
Hi Cubby! Thank you for your sweet words. They were fun to watch and to photograph. We will be seeing them here in a few weeks, as our journey, takes us south for the winter. I hope you are having a week.
Nice photos Sheila. The sunlight sure made them stand out! The last picture is funny! We had a feeder in our Georgia home backyard. Could sit for hours watching them.
Hi Gay, thanks! We are getting close to leaving. I have one more appointment, one more doggie to get groomed, Rambling Rose needs cleaning and loading! Whew!
I love to sit and watch these guys also!
Nice shots! If you come far enough south you will get to see our Mexican Cardinal, the Pyrrhuloxia!
Hi Kathie, I have seen them; they are beautiful! Perhaps next fall we will head back to Oro Valley and we will have to go birding!
Beautiful birds they are! 🙂
Hi LuAnn, Wonderful to hear from you! Hope you are enjoying your “on-the-road-again” adventures! We are planning to leave either the 26th or 27th. The Denver Broncos are playing on the 27th and we sure don’t want to get caught in the traffic!
Enjoy the journey!
You as well and safe travels.
