I got up very early this morning to take out the trash (had to walk aaalllll the way down two flights of stairs and go to the far end of the parking lot! Augh!) and what did I see when I was coming back, on my third floor balcony? A cardinal!!
He (it must have been a male because he was so brightly colored) flew in and perched on the black railing, close to my flowers though he didn’t hop about them, as I hoped he would – and then flew away into the bright blue sky.
I could hardly believe it!!
What could he have been doing so far south? I thought they were cold weather birds!
In any case, I was delighted to see him, it brought back memories of seeing cardinals in Virginia, especially during spring.
What a nice way to begin the day!
