Seeing Red

My garden is resting now so when we go "beyond my garden" we are usually looking at birds. 
The birds appear when green leaves disappear.  
The multi-colored flower beds have been replaced by feeders which have blossomed into multi-colored feathered visitors.
Among the most colorful are the Cardinals, state bird of West Virginia and always welcome both in and beyond my garden.

we consider them to be common visitors, and yet they are so vivid and beautiful!

Esther, I can't imagine a world without Cardinals. So lovely; both male and female. They aren't too aggressive at the feeder, even letting the Chickadees eat alongside them. Ours come in even more just as it grows dark, six or seven pairs.
