We've been happy to see the return of cardinals to our balcony as they've been coming by several times a day to munch that yummy yummy birdseed we have out. What's particularly cute about the cardinal couple is that they feed one another seeds from time to time. We sort of caught that here:



They also seem to have a chaperone...

Lol, I love the little photobomber in the background. He looks like he's going "Ugh, you all are so sweet, it sickens me".

I think these might be purple finches? Cardinals usually have a little crest on the top of their heads.

Yeah, doesn't look like a cardinal to me for the lack of that crest.

Technical question: did you change the hue/saturation on that image? I really like its flat lighting.

Thanks

Grackles are smart enough to nest upside down!

That's a starling, not a grackle. You can tell by the colors of the bill and feet, and the shape of the tail.

Wow!! Beautiful little visitors!

I am so thankful for all the birds I can hear around my house. Sometimes I even get hummingbirds. I wish I worked somewhere with more birds and open windows. Birds make life so much nicer.

Which reminds me that I need to get mine up, too!!! Although I think they arrive a little later here, so maybe this weekend will be good enough for me... They are magical creatures.
