This is my Red Cardinal that stays in our old shed out back. He comes back every year in the Winter. He only stays in the shed at night, he does have a mate in a nest in my Bamboo next to the shed.
We put out seed and water for him. During the day he is gone, but returns to the Old Shed at night, maybe to watch over his mate.
Wow, what a gorgeous bird! You are blessed to have him nest with you! (06/30/2006)
He is beautiful. You are so lucky to have him. (07/01/2006)

Thanks for sharing the picture of your cardinal. They're my favorite birds. We had them back home, but here we don't have any. Thanks again! (07/02/2006)
The cardinal was one of the first birds I learned from my father. They are one of the few birds I can recognize by their song. Since my Dad died whenever I see one, I see it as a good luck sign. You are very lucky! (07/05/2006)
We are also blessed with cardinals. What beauty. I love to watch the parents with their fledglings. As far as you having bamboo, do you find it's a problem? I am trying to find some, it's so expensive. Where do you live? Would you mail shoots? I live in NJ. Val (07/25/2006)
