    I don't know who named this bird however I think he should be named, "Strawberry Finch,". I posted this bird before but I think this picture is better than the first one I did this year. (have you done that?)

    I try to give you guys some variety of my pictures and this lovely female Cardinal came up. I haven't posted a female Northern Cardinal since September of last year. I think she looks precious. I regret posting yesterday's photo (you ever do that?) it wasn't very colorful at all.

    Red-shouldered Hawk, Juvenile

    This was in my next door neighbors backyard so I took it through the window and screen. I think I got the ID right (we have lots of Red-shouldered hawks), but I could be wrong (as usual lol!) In Murrells Inlet, SC.
