CARDINALS CHILLING (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

Cardinals

Different male cardinals, photographed on the same day.  Both birds are moulting although the first bird looks somewhat rougher than the second.  I took these photos last year about this time. The breeding season is now past, food is plentiful and even the birds get to chill for a bit. 😊

  1. Poor fella, on the first one, we know he’s seen better days. Your second shot is beautiful composed, love the pine. Both fellas will be gorgeous in their Sunday best come Spring! 🙂

  4. Great captures Belinda and still beautiful even while moulting! I couldn’t help but think maybe the first one is a little older. Age has a way of making us look a little worse for the wear!

  5. Love these sweet birds. Although the first does look like he’s been out on an all-nighter. Beautifully photographed, Belinda. ❤️

  6. The cardinals here have been entirely too quick for me to capture. That was some row they had last night 😉

  7. Only a little bit scruffy–but I bet they’ve earned it, as have we.

  8. Molting is a messy business to say the least. They’ll be sporting a fine new set of feathers for winter. Nice captures of this in-between time, Belinda.
