We have quite a few different birds visiting our garden over a 12 month cycle, but especially of course during the warmer months. Outside our window, which overlooks the back garden, is a holly bush. We had noticed a Cardinal hanging around, but thought little of it until a few days ago when Carol happened to look out and saw this:
I guess we have our Easter Egg! It may not be chocolate but, I bet it has a lovely surprise inside. For anybody not familiar with Cardinals, below is a male (Pic taken a few years ago). The female, typical of all the birds that I have seen, is less colourful … but a male and female together make a lovely couple!
Footnote: Just prior to posting, a second egg appeared in the nest!
