This Morning Outside

Cardinals are the first birds to come every morning for breakfast and a drink from the heated birdbath. Usually they show up as soon as there's just a little bit of light, long before the sun rises.

I find the female particularly lovely, with the subtle warm tones of her breast. Of course, if all you could see was that big, bright bill, you'd know instantly that you were looking at a cardinal.
