A male cardinal

The rain returned today, but the birds were still singing. It was mild, with highs in the mid-50°s (F).

Male cardinals are holding forth, singing up a storm -- and establishing their territories. This was a post about another male cardinal in late February.

This male was up in the Yoshino cherry trees near the geology museum (in the garden where I work). He was singing loudly - check out this recording.

They have a wonderful song (or call) -- distinctive and recognizable.

  1. Love the cheery red of the Male Northern Cardinal.

Please share your thoughts with me. I always enjoy hearing from fellow gardeners and nature observers of all sorts, as well as whomever else drops by.
