Female Northern Cardinal
With the window open a crack just after New Year, I heard the tell-tale chirp of a Cardinal.
There was a bit of a winter storm brewing as I looked out that window.
I managed to capture this gorgeous female on a maple branch as the wind picked up a notch.
There may have been a male in the nearby pines.
