Travel Photo of the Day (January 19)

I spent countless hours when I lived in Boston trying to get a decent photo of this cardinal. Sad to say, this is the best of the bunch. I think he’s laughing at me.

    Cardinals are so hard to photo. I think you got a good one there.

    My mom always gets one red cardinal by her bird feeder and it’s very elusive. I have yet to get a shot of it!!!

  6. I grew up with cardinals in Michigan–swam for the Cooley Cardinals in high school! I do miss them, as there are no cardinals in Seattle.

    I agree, I think sometimes when you try to photograph birds they think “This stupid things on 2 legs can’t even fly and then they want to come nearer and nearer!: or something like that!

  11. What a beautiful bird. I rescued a pigeon with a broken wing this morning. I have nominated you for a blog award. Come check it out! 🙂

    We have a pair of cardinals, Mr and Mrs., attending our feeder just feet from our window where we have breatkfast/lunch – actually, yesterday a second Mr. showed up – and we are constantly trying to capture these skittish fellows.

  17. those in my yard come right on to the porch. the babies are an amazing shade of green. their crest’s or whatever you call the crown of their heads are unruly and hilarious. they’ve very sweet birds. they mate for life and share the baby rearing. lovely little birds.
