This past week, West Tennessee has experienced sleet, snow and extremely cold temperatures, which have rendered many homebound. One of the things I have enjoyed during this time has been watching a flock of cardinals that have been visiting the feeders. Their activity and beauty have been a bright spot in some bitterly cold and icy days.

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
Wonderful photos! Thank you!
Thanks! I may imagine it, but it seems like the expressions in cardinals faces are more apparent than in a lot of birds. They are fun to photograph,
Tons of cardinals this winter! Love them so and still enjoy counting how many are around the feeders.
Yes, there do seem to be a lot of them! Hard to count them they flit about so. 🙂
Cardinals seem to like snow. They hang around up here too even in the coldest months. What a beautiful contrast they make against new fallen snow.
They probably depend on bird feeders to survive up in your long, cold winters. They are beautiful little birds to see in the snow!
Beautiful captures of your Cardinals! I think the female is more beautiful than the male, and love #4 and #6 photos. I don’t think I have ever seen so many Cardinals in one bush, awesome!!
Thanks! On really cold days, I find them waiting in the bush for me to bring out the food. As soon as I put it out, they are all over it. The cardinals are my favorite!
