I spent most of today doing bird photography, and it paid off! I was happy to make two Northern Cardinal Photographs, and one of a Mourning Dove. The falling snow really added a lot to all three of these photographs.
The Northern Cardinal has been visiting the feeders daily since he first showed up back in November. I’ve seen the female in the area but never at the feeders.
I have been trying to attract Northern Cardinals to the feeders for several years without any luck. That all changed this past week when a female showed up. Over the past several days a male has also stopped by the feeders a few times. I was able to get a couple photographs yesterday but the best shot so far came today with the freshly fallen snow. Just in time for the holiday shopping season to boot!
