We have had so many cardinals this year. The other day I counted 8 females. There are less males than females, maybe only four.
We got home from my dad's funeral the other day. I looked out the kitchen window. I saw smudges on the outside of the window and immediately thought we had had a peeing tom. Someone was casing our joint.
Then, I moved a little and saw this.
I think we have one less male cardinal. Can you believe the detail left on the window? I can see individual feathers, the beak, feet, and wings. It's amazing!
