It is Getting Doggone Cold

The temps are dropping and the birds have been pigging out on corn and seeds to prepare for it. Tomorrow the temps in our area will keep falling all day with wind chills getting down to as low as -30 (-34 C)
keep warm if you can! fabulous detail. just love these cardinals and i've never seen one in the uk - though more knowledgeable brits may tell otherwise!

Beautiful female cardinal. The males are flashier but the females are beautiful in their own, more subdued, way.

@pistache - It is my hope that one day you you will be able to see a pair of them.

@casablanca - That is what my wife said this weekend when we heard what was coming. But then I had to remind her that I have an appointment at the hospital today. Since all the schools and many agencies are closed I thought there was a chance they may cancel but they called yesterday confirm.

@fbailey - Thank you for the kind compliment! One good thing about snow is that it reflects the light nicely for shots like this.

Fantastic capture and feather details...Stay warm.

@gardencat - Yes they are. And the females tend to be more relaxed at the feeder. They wait patiently at times where the males aren't so much.

@danette - We are thank you! 😊Right now it is -6 with a windchill of -13. But then I heard from a friend on Facebook who lives in Illinois where it is -26 with a windchill of -50. Lesson : if you think you have it bad there is always somebody who has it worse.

@bruni - We see variations in the colors of both males and females. Most are close to this but others the reds are kind of drab.
