Queuing up for the black oil sunflower seed offered at the feeder, a male Northern Cardinal patiently waits. And as he waits, he adorns my yard with beauty in brilliant red. My backyard cardinals are the first to visit the feeder at dawn and the last to leave at dusk. At times, I have as many as ten cardinals perched throughout the yard. It’s a priceless simple pleasure that always leaves me in wonder.
