Ruby Tuesday: Mouthful of Seeds

I took this through my sunroom window so the image is a little grainy when you enlarge it but if you do you can see the cardinal has just about all he can eat crammed in that little orange beak.

The Cardinal is a wonderful capture. He knows the best place to rest and eat - just outside your window, of course!

Leora said...

Not just one but two happy birds! Love your shot of the cardinal. I have been meaning to do a watercolor painting of a cardinal - such handsome birds.

Annie said...

Ahhh, lookie. You have my favorite, a cardinal, up. Cheeky little guy on the left moving in too, I see.

Hugs and blessings,

Great closeup shot, Carletta. I enlarged it and saw the seeds in the cardinal's beak. I can't tell the photo is through a window.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Jim said...

That's nice, Carletta, that you can see these guys so good from your sunroom. It looks to me like they are talking with their mouths full.
Happy RT!

Very nice my friend. I love it. What a wonderful photo :)

George said...

I guess the cardinal was afraid you wouldn't refill the feeder and wanted to get as much as he possibly could.

Dimple said...

A rather full beak, indeed! Great shot! We don't have cardinals here; they are bright and beautiful!

Always enjoy seeing the cardinals

Rose said...

Great capture, Carletta. My photos through the window never turn out this good.

Great capture - cardinals are one of my favorites!

I've not this close to a cardinal, he's such a cutie one and so is his color.

So pretty! Cardinals don't live in the Pacific Northwest, so we never had one on a birdfeeder. But on our first trip East I was so excited to spot my first and I still love to find them when we travel -- they're an exotic species to us! I do miss having bird feeders.

Celebrated it with Dad

Wonderful capture. Cardinals are such beautiful birds.

There are five pair of red birds in our back yard and I never tire of photographing them. I've even used one as my Ruby Tuesday badge.

Your cardinal is beautiful!

I saw the biggest, fattest blue jay yesterday, and it was amazing!

What a beautiful shot. I love the red of the cardinal.

I can't put a bird feeder out here - all I'd do is entice the pigeons to keep pooping all over my laundry lines!

Hootin' Anni said...

Excellent photo. And I just gotta add --- your bird feeder is so 'clean' looking. Ours is grubby all the time with tons of birds. LOL

jewwishes said...

This is absolutely beautiful and precious. Cardinals such are such a gorgeous feathered friend!!!

Yes, if the male (which this is) is helping to feed babies, he can cram a lot in his beak and cheeks.

Jientje said...

This one made me smile! Adorable!

Gattina said...

Gorgeous ! I wished we had red birds here !

Susan L (lily40au) said...

MyMaracas said...

Pretty shot! We had lots of cardinals around last winter, but I haven't seen any this year.

Twisted Fencepost said...

Yes, he does!
I love cardinals. We have plenty of them around here. I wish I had a picture window to watch them from.

kalamarie123 said...

Crafty Green Poet said...

cardinals are so beautiful, we don't get them over here of course...

eileeninmd said...

Carletta, it is a gorgeous shot of the male cardinal.

Pat said...

I did enlarge it and I did indeed see all the seeds! He sure is greedy! LOL! Although the cardinal is a common bird, I still love to see his flash of red in the trees and bushes!

Stephany said...

Lovely! This does not look like it was taken through a window. You reminded me that I need to get birdseed or I'm not going to have any birds!
