Morning Song

Look who was singing outside my window this morning! As I gazed at my sleepy face in the bathroom mirror, I heard a happy song close by. When I turned and looked out the window, there he was, singing his little heart out. In fact, I still hear him. He's probably singing for a female cardinal who's near, but I'd like to think he's singing for me, too. Thankfully he stayed put while I ran downstairs for the camera and attached the big zoom lens.







Thanks, Mr. Cardinal, for a sweet start to my Friday! Who knows? Maybe I'll join your happy morning song...it is bound to be good for body and soul. Have a wonderful day and a great weekend!

  1. Especially love the one with his mouth open. These are great. Be thankful he's not dive bombing your window. We have a kamikaze female cardinal who hates her reflection.

    1. We had a male doing that one spring...for weeks! Now it's the bluebirds. They sure are territorial!

  4. Love the mid-note 'open beak' shot too and this post reminds me of Johnny Cash singing, "a cardinal sang just for me and I thanked him for the song . . . ".

    1. Believe it or not, all these photos were taken through the window! I've had pretty good luck with bird photography like that. The photos have a rather soft look instead of a nice sharp focus, but it seems to work. Thanks for stopping by!
