Nice shots, bendy!!! :highfive: Love the cardinal--ours are so skittish this winter! Nice to see some pics, at least :thumbs up

And isn't it great to see your hard work pay off? I'm sure the dogs are happy to see the birds taking advantage of the treats you made--the sooner the birds polish them off, the sooner the dogs will be able to 'help' you make more feeders! Finger-lickin' good! :laughing:

Great pics Bendy :thumbs up It's nice to see some pics of Cardinals & Blue Jays as those of us in Western Canada don't get to see the birds out here (we do get the the Stellar's Jay though.)

Wow, What brand of camera did you use ? I would send them to your local TV station, you know when they ask for pics ? Beautiful, you are very talented !!:thumbs up

It's a Canon PowerShot, just a point-and-shoot...but with lots of bells and whistles (which I'm still trying to learn about)
Thanks for the nice compliments everybody! :o

I don't get many birds due to the feral cats :sad:

I love how cardinals always come in pairs... the females are so pretty, even if they're not as splashy as the males.
