Oh my goddness. I do love this red bird. I left this comment to the end becaue I want to go sleeping with this image in my mind and his songs in my ears.Birds are all what I always wanted to be. There's one on the back of my backyard that sings for me everytime he sees me hanging my washed clothes and we develop a complete conversation. T ake care and be happy among birds. Kindly, Isaura

Love the cardinal. It's the state bird in Illinois. I never tire of looking at any bird actually, except for crows & ravens.
