Cardinal in Winter

Male Cardinal in evergreen bush Winter 2013

We had the tree limbs trimmed away from our house so that there would be less chance of them falling on the place in the future, during a storm. The guy who did the work was initially not too excited about it. Somehow he got inspired and started cutting down all the limbs on all the trees. We didn't mind, at least not at the time.

Later we realized our bird watching was going to be limited because there were many fewer limbs for the birds to sit upon. So now we are watching birds in the evergreen bushes out front, which is where this fellow was caught.

Many of my male cardinal pictures lose the eye of the bird in his black mask. I like the fact his eye in this picture is very pronounced and shines for us.
