Redneck Friend

I went for a quick walk yesterday but it was cold down by Lake Ontario with the wind coming in but I happened upon my old friend Mr. Cracked Beakman (Northern Cardinal) He was waiting for his Mrs..who I never did see.......


Can you imagine this? (It was once prized as a pet, but its sale as cage birds is now banned in the United States by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918.)


"Cardinals are also known as red birds and Virginia nightingales."


Busy day again today so will catch up with everyone later on....Have a good one.
