I took about 50 pictures, just to make sure I got a couple good ones. It was a great way to spend a snow day!
How wonderful that it wasn't injured at all and you got to not only see it, but get some great shots! ...and a snow day to boot! (You finally got your cancellation! )

I was going to say that #4 of 5 was my favorite, too...(it is), but I like the profile shots too. GMTA (great minds think alike)

Thanks, Dapjwy! I had such a good time watching him fall asleep after his big meal!

Maybe there was quite a bit of tryptophan in whatever he was eating.

I'm sure it was an amazing experience.

The first one is my favorite--it would be greatly improved if there were not a house sparrow in it! I LOVE the position of the cardinal and the lighting on it...Nice to see the red-bellied wood pecker at the feeder juxtaposed with the natural elements of the tree and cardinal perched there.

The last shot is a lot like the layout of the land here in Michigan.

Thanks, dapjwy - The cardinal is grasping the cord that I use to raise and lower the feeder, it passes over a branch that is nearly 20' up in order to thwart raiding raccoons that used to empty the feeder when it was in a different location.

Looking back, I can see the cord now--now that I know what I'm looking for. It still makes for a great perch and I love the position he is in.
