Bird On A Wire

Male cardinal on the fence.
Cardinals don’t migrate and they don’t molt into a dull plumage, so they’re still breathtaking in winter’s snowy backyards. In summer, their sweet whistles are one of the first sounds of the morning.

A beautifully colored bird. We have many beautiful birds in Sweden but none resembling this. Very nice to see. Good captured
