Northern Cardinal in woods / 林中的北美紅雀

I believe one of the famous "Angry Bird" is based on Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis). I took these photos in Nichols Arboretum of the University of Michigan (in Ann Arbor, Michigan). I was walking along the trail in the Arboretum. There were not yet many flowers in this early spring, so everything looked green. Then I saw a red spot among tree branches, and I recognized it was a bird. I switched my camera lens to a telephoto lens as fast as possible. I started to take photos from far away, and tried to get close to it slowly. However, at some distance I scared it and it flew away.
