When I got home today our feeders were filled with birds: Juncos, Chickadees, Carolina Wrens, Nuthatchers, etc. But what always catches my eyes are the Cardinals. I always try to count them. They of course don't cooperate. I'll get almost to my goal and they realign themselves. They all take turns at the feeder so everyone is in constant motion. I did count seventeen males today. So including their significant others there were probably about three dozen Cardinals in the backyard, looking like a painting against the winter white.
