  3. One of my fondest memories of being a kid back in Minnesota was a cardinal that would sit on an ice-covered lilac tree outside my window. He was so beautiful. They sure are striking against the snow or blue sky. Thanks for the very nice Haikus, Young Naturalist C. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. We were blessed by the plethora of cardinals we ended up with this year. I can only hope next year is much the same.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours! Keep up the good “work” on the blog, Mon@rch & the Young Naturalists!

    I can’t agree more YNC. I have often thought Cardinals look good enough to eat. πŸ™‚

  11. Cardinals certainly bring cheer, don’t they? I have a pair that live somewhere nearmy condo. They are often singing their “what cheer” song when I leave for work. Always makes me smile =)
