I didn't recognize her... I guess I've never seen a female cardinal from quite this angle!

Black and white certainly makes you look - she stands out so well
I suppose the head tuft gives her away, Mary, but I didn't know it was a cardinal either. But I DID immediately know it was a bird on a wire. smile

A female cardinal? I thought the pope only choose males as cardinals smile

I like the b&w and old Leonard.
Not a bird I'm familiar with but it is very pretty.
Wonderful cardinal shots, Mary. Wonder if she is waiting for her mate to return. The perfect Leonard Cohen song to accompany these images.
That certainly had me guessing!
i had the title out before i scrolled out Mary... good shot....petersmile

I’m trying the work out the size bases on the wire; I’m guessing around 15cm?

a classic shot, so nicely done
I got out my bird book - quite sure it's not a Cardinal... but maybe a female Waxwing? Hmmmm - I love a challenge... smile
