The Cardinal Couple

Sine we live in the country, and have woods, we have tons of furry critters around our house. Birds, squirrels, snakes and lizards. I've seen a few chipmunks, and I'm sure there are some deer somewhere. But, my favorites are this cute little cardinal couple who hang out behind our house. I keep a bird feeder on my back deck, and the cute little cardinal couple spends lots of time there. They hardly ever eat together though - one will eat while the other keeps watch, then they switch places. Today I did see Dad bird eat, then take Momma bird some seeds while she was keeping watch.  I'm not sure if they have a bird family or not (they're the only cardinals I've seen), but I call them Dad and Momma bird anyway.

They were just out there eating while I was typing this up. How cute :)
