A red male cardinal and a female brown cardinal visited my backyard yesterday, after we had about 5 inches of snowfall the day before. I enjoy the cardinals’ visits – they usually come as a pair. I had filled my bird feeder, and they found it quickly. The day before we had blue jays visiting. I think blue jays will scare away other birds while they are in the vicinity.

Do you have bird visitors in your backyard?
