The "red bird" is a much loved, much photographed winter sight.  I am seeing quite a few this year.  They seem to love the crepe myrtle seeds.  Here is a shot from my window yesterday (an overcast day).

What's your favorite winter bird?


  1. When we lived in Burlington I learned the CArdinal was the NC State Bird. It was the first bird I ever tried to draw or paint. I painted on on my home-made wagon at 6 years old. Of course I had to tell my sister what it was! (smile). But it is a beautiful bird...

    1. I love the story about painting the bird on your wagon. What an industrious 6 year old!
