No, not that kind. :) That would be pretty cool, though.
Not the baseball team either.
I mean the ones with feathers. A pair of them seems to have developed a thing for a tall tree in our backyard. If we're lucky, maybe they'll start nesting.
I never actually saw cardinals until I moved to Texas. I have always thought them beautiful, but never had a chance to really get a good look. But lately, I have been seeing them and hearing their songs almost daily. The male cardinal stands out the most, being brightly colored. Occasionally he'll streak through the air from one end of our property to the other.
