Ruby Tuesday - Red Birds

Tulsa has had several inches of snow this week and today (Monday) it rained all day.  Not a heavy downpour but one of those slow soaking rains that sinks in and fills up the ponds.  More snow is forecast and we should have several more inches by morning.

My bird feeders have had plenty of customers.  Here are two kinds of redbirds.  The little guy is a house finch with a red cap and bib.  The big guy is a male Cardinal, one of the most widely recognized birds in the USA.  When I was a kid we called them "redbirds".

Really birds for ruby tuesday. The cardinal is the true champion of red birds. Pity we don't have such bird in europe but still can enjoy them thanks to photo's like yours.

The cardinals are always a nice splash of color in the middle of winter.

Even the birds look so sad and cold, seem to be in deep contemplation
