The cardinal that nests in my neighborhood is back.
I took these pictures from inside my house through the sliding glass door.
He and his mate (who is very shy) have been nesting here for years. I've lived here for more than 6 years - they come back every year.
There are also blue jays in the neighborhood, but they stay on the other side of the street.
There were 2 woodpeckers in my front yard yesterday and a HUGE fat squirrel.
