Sleepy Sundays: Hey There, Little Red

My son and I always enjoy watching all of the little creatures that roam about before it’s time for him to go off to school. His favorite are the male cardinals that hang around the trees in front. (Female cardinals have a darker feathers and appear to be sandy-brownish. It’s the males that don the beautiful, bright red to attract the ladies.)
When I returned from sending my little one off to school, there sat this little red guy checking me out. So, I did what I always do & snapped a photo of him.

There were some undesirable blurs in the photo that had to be cropped out because it was so sunny that day. This little bird was so adorable I just had to edit the photo and give it a painting effect.

I give you:

Little Red

Have a pleasant Sunday, everyone!

I’ve noticed several cardinals on our property this year. The year we planted corn in the garden, we had bluejays – but mostly we see wrens and robins. We hear mourning doves (they drive me crazy!), but I never see them.


They all drive me crazy at like 4AM with their loud chirping but I still love them. You can often hear them having “conversations” outside in the giant maple tree.
We once had a nest of mourning doves on an outside light at our shore house. (The house we sold long ago.) I have fond memories of raising the little chicks because the mother abandoned them. We always assumed she got hurt by a stray cat or dog. They were so cute! They do make their trademark “coo” quite a bit, though. 😛
