She popped out of the brush and darted back in repeatedly. She's a nervous little thing, but quite pretty. I really like the red-orange accents on her wings, tail, and beak. And, who can resist that cute little red spiked hair? Although I grew up with cardinals in my neighborhood and my high school mascot was the cardinal, I found this couple to be particularly charming. It was one of the rare times I've seen a male so close and the first time I've really gotten a good look at a female. Love this place!
