Love Birds

Hands down, my favorite part of snowy days is having cardinals converge on our yard. The sparrows come too, and they are cute, but they don't impress me as much as the beautiful cardinals do.

I like watching the bright red males try to woo the not-as-stunning females.

This one chased the sparrows away,

and even hopped around on one foot,

but I think this female was just too cold to care.

This pretty girl was sitting on our pile of rocks watching another male try to impress her.

I wanted to tell him, "Dude, she might be more interested if you weren't sitting on a SPINE!"

But when I try to offer sincere advice, the birds get all ruffled and fly away, so I have learned to bite my tongue and just laugh at the poor hapless males who can't seem to do anything right to get the girl.
