Part 2: And finally ... DRUM ROLL! The Northern Cardinal

Late in the afternoon - THERE HE WAS. For the first time I got the Northern Cardinal close to my house. Yeeehaaa!
I am so excited because we don't have these birds in Europe where I grew up. Just splendid - the colour.

Now I have to wait until he gets more familiar and less shy so that I can get him closer to the camera.
These photos were taken with a 200mm lens, while the bird sat about 100 feet (30 m) away in an apple tree.
Like a Christmas ornament! There he was.

I guess I have to start a new blog - about my birding. :))


  1. Absolutely gorgeous birds. I love taking pictures of birds. They usually don't stand still long enough.

  2. Wonderful pictures today, thanks for sharing!

  3. These are great - I've never seen either bird. I know what you mean, my blog has been taken over by birds, but I'm loving it. It IS kind of addicting to see new birds, especially the colorful ones. :)


I love getting a comment from you now and then. Be patient, they will appear, I just have to see first if they are OK to publish. No anonymous any more. I am getting too much spam.
