I love watching the birds as they come to the feeders. Seeing the blue jays and cardinals in the winter then slowly more and more birds come as the weather turns warmer. We've seen quite a few red winged black birds around here meaning spring is well on its way. Did you know that red winged black birds are the first birds of spring, not robins?
I love the bright red of the cardinals. They always look so elegant against the snow in the winter.
Sorry about the grid on the picture, I was taking it through the window =)
