|A female Cardinal gets her share|
|You can just make out a Junco, a Cardinal, and Blue Jay building up their courage to come to the feeders|
|One of my favorite winter images is that of a male Cardinal shining out from the white and gray|
|Here a cardinal pair and a junco wait their turn|
|The male get his turn|
|His mate is right behind him|
|Another male cardinal at the feeder|
|The little Juncos prefer to be ground feeders|
|When the Jays come, they pretty much take over|
|And the cardinals wait their turn...|
|...along with everybody else!|
It's a simple and maybe silly pleasure, but I find watching the birds to be a very relaxing thing that just makes me happy. That in itself is worth the cost of the sunflower seed we provide. As I watch I can't help but think of Jesus' words in Matthew chapter 10:29-31 - "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. Even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows".
Now that is something to smile about. Have a wonderful week, everyone. We are blessed.
