Kissing Cardinals

Saying Grace?
We're hooked on the Cardinals, even though they continue to voraciously whistle their love songs at five a.m. Today, when I noticed the Mister and Missus cavorting about, I grabbed my camera and patiently waited, till I captured him feeding her a seed. This behavior is part of the courting ritual, to be continued when she's incubating eggs, in the nest. (Read more here, if you're interested.) What a stud, taking such good care of his Lady

If I'm fortunate enough to capture the dynamic duo more clearly, I'll swap out the photos. Meanwhile, remember:
