Late Xmas Presents

Regular readers may remember that on xmas eve PD (Puddy Dale, Jr. and I didn't give him that name) requested cardinals in his stocking. Santa being a kind old gent of tender heart, he couldn't quite see giving PD the birds in hand, er, paw. So here he gives him his cardinals right outside the window, male and female alike.

Cardinals are such a regular part of our life that I don't think about them much. Oh, hey, there they are. Purdy. Ho, hum. But folks that don't see cardinals regularly are quite taken with the numbers that show up as freeloaders at the weatherdude's feeders. Me, I like the various woodpeckers more, but it's harder to get a photo of them.

Our college student friend comes from San Diego and in several years here has not really seen any cardinals. So I took photos yesterday and she cropped away to her heart's content. These photos are the collaborative result.

Hope they're harbingers of good things. As potential harbingers of doom, far too many are lurking in my bushes...

not to mention my trees...

and for them that likes their bunnies...a nonsequitor.
