That cardinal is beautiful.  Where I grew up in Illinois, cardinals overwintered in our yard.  I've never seen one here in western Washington and western Oregon.

Pretty birds Sentient Biped! My mom had some that looked similar - she especially loved the blue bird variety of parakeet.

Statler and Waldorf (taken 5 min ago)

Sometimes they chatter for hours.  They are within view of the outdoor bird feeders, but there is no evidence that they see through the window.

This is a cool idea for a group.

I specialize in Ornithology. My mom always had parakeets as pets when I was little and that it what started my passion for birds. You can learn much from observing wildlife and how they interact with each other. I love to observe birds and recognize them by their bird song.

The Roseate Spoonbill, Platalea ajaja, (sometimes placed in its own genus Ajaja) is a gregarious wading bird of the ibis and spoonbill family, Threskiornithidae. It is a resident breeder in South America mostly east of the Andes, and in coastal regions of the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, and the Gulf Coast of the United States.

It's always a treat to go birding at the coast and see these birds.
