Cardinal Rules

Real Estate Agent with Sailwinds Realty

Our little palm tree in front of our home office window in New Port Richey, FL is host to many creatures at various times. This past two weeks we have had a pretty visitor who I think may have a nest in the bush on the other side of our walkway.  The palm tree must be her get-away place when she needs a break.  Mr. Cardinal knows to replace her at egg-sitting.


Cardinal Rules


Personally, I think the lady Cardinals are just as pretty as their flashy red male companions. They have soft pink accents and a suede-like look to their brown feathers.  We have lots of cardinals and always have a new family or two.

It's such a busy time of year and I have missed a few posts and comments.  I will be catching up soon.  Enjoy last-minute shopping!

I've said it before but living in Timber Greens is like living in a wildlife park. 

Hope you enjoyed my Cardinal Rules this morning.

Toni-You captured her perfectly and she is just as pretty in her own way as the male. The one thing that stands out on her is her beak. It is a beautiful orange. Cardinals are my fav bird. Happy Sunday

Toni: We have cardinals that return every year to nest in the back yard. I love watching both the male and female take care of the nest.

Toni, I just love Cardinals and watching them interact. They're a unit and help each other. It's definitely a busy time of year and hard to keep up. We can just do the best we can and not worry about the rest.

Good afternoon Toni.  We don't have bright birds of color in our area but we are enjoying the little Black back Finches.  We always enjoy the red Cardinals on our trips East.
