At the Feeders and in the Trees - Week 23



Wow is it cold outside! 


Our temps have been below 20 degrees for several days and will continue for all of this week. I am filling my feeders each day and hope you are able to keep your feeders full too. 



I don't know what it is about photographing cardinals, but it is always exciting to me to capture them in my trees or at the feeders. They are just so beautiful!



Don't forget about water too. 


For Thankful Thursday, I am so thankful that I am able to feed the birds in my yard. I am also thankful for the close relationship I had with my sister. She passed away unexpectedly this week. 


Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

  1. Hello, your Cardinals are gorgeous. Beautiful photos. It is cold out there, I feel sorry for the birds and critters. I wish you and yours all the best in 2018, happy New Year! Have a great day and new week!

  3. Love your cardinals! We live on a lake so a bird bath is no attraction (except to mosquitoes!), and the Muscovy Ducks spill out any seed we placed in a feeder. To make things wors, the hummer stopped visiting our sugar water!

  4. I have never seen a cardinal - nor do I expect to - but your photos are beautiful and make me think how great it would to be to see them and photograph them! Thanks for sharing.

  5. I have been keeping my feeders full. A Cardinal couple and a few other species are daily visitors.

  6. Beautiful Cardinals!
    Lots of birds at my feeders. The most unusual one I have seen is a Brown Thrasher enjoying the suet.
    So very cold here, too. Saturday was the last day the temps were above freezing, but today's high (Wednesday) is predicted to be 37F
    Hope you are having a great week!

  7. Beautiful cardinal shots! They are a bright spot in the midst of these horribly cold temps. It's supposed to reach 40° here today and I'm looking forward to it!

  8. Judy - as always, I adore your cardinal pictures - we don't have them in Montana and I really miss them! Here, we not only have cold temps but also deep snow; it is over my knees when I go out to the feeders! Happy New Year!

  16. Lovely lovely pictures of this wonderful bird. Thank you for keeping your feeders filled for them in this terrible weather you guys are having (hope it's warmed up some by now). I'm pretty sure I've told you before about my Kentucky-born and bred mother and how she missed the cardinals which don't live in the Pacific Northwest, where she ended up! Happy New Year!!!
