RE: Spring! Cardinals


Yes, their plumage does dull a bit for the winter but the male still makes a
wonderful contrast against white snow.  I can see our mail has brightened
considerably in the last week.

I think their plumage must brighten at this time of year. We, too, have them
all year; I'm not sure where they nest, but somewhere close to the house. We
have a pair that often visit the small, wall-mounted birdbath.
