One Photo A Day | Day 133 | Shy Cardinal

One photo a day challenge: Day 133.

Today I was able to get outside for a little bird watching at home.

Some birds are so bold. They will fly right by me or land right up close to me.

Other birds are more standoffish. They watch from a distance and mostly wait for me to leave before appearing anyplace close to where I am.

The Northern Cardinals in my yard always seem to be very cautious. They seldom move in close to the bird feeders while I am outside watching. However, we watch them from a close vantage point from inside the house and see them come to the feeders regularly.

I was very happy when this Cardinal made an appearance. He even stayed in place long enough for a few photos.

Male Northern Cardinal.

Success! You're on the list.
