We saw many new birds during our 2 day layover in Hawaii. A highlight for me was the Red-crested Cardinal…similar in shape and size to other Cardinals, but colored with a much brighter shade of red. What a beauty!
Cardinals are extremely photogenic. They may be common, but Its hard to ignore their striking red plumage…even the subtler females are gorgeous. Cardinals are not migratory, so the Cardinals in your yard in winter are often the same ones you saw in the summer. I could take photos of these beauties all day…here is a nice one from the other day 🙂
I was lucky to catch a sweet moment between two Cardinals…the male bit the shells off some sunflower seeds and brought the treats to his lady ❤ Love is in the air…its springtime!
