A Heartbeat in the Sky . . .



Male Cardinals punctuate the drab winter landscape with exclamation points of bright red. They're here year round but are probably most appreciated just now.



There seem to be at least a dozen in regular attendance at our bird feeders.


In summer they'll just be a grace note amidst the colors of the flowers and butterflies, but, now, how thankful I am for their presence.

Cheep, cheep, cheep. Their song is easily spotted too, but I haven't seen one for a while...no feeders where I now live. Will have to go into the woods soon!

Beautiful bright spots they are.

How bright the cardinals are, and how beautifully you write about them.
