Very nice Kelly...I have never been able to capture a shot of a cardinal. :(

Thanks! One of these days we'll have to meet at Mendon Ponds. If I can do it, you surely can. It's actually quite easy there! :up:

I got to get there one of these days....is there a better time of day for bird sightings?

Any time of day, particularly when there's snowcover - the birds are very active all along Birdsong Trail near the Nature Center. Bring black oil sunflower seeds.
