1 Shot Wednesday: Red-crested Cardinal

Red-crested Cardinal

This was the first time I had seen a Cardinal whose plumage looked like he was wearing a red cowl. He was one of the common, visual treats found on the island of Kaui from last summer’s visit.

    • Thanks Maggie — I thought the red against the gray stone was particularly vibrant. He jumped around a lot but finally stood still for me to snap my camera. πŸ™‚

    • I am always wishing for clearer close ups, but I find most of my shots are aimed at things far away and can’t seem to capture the far away shots, too. I would have to shell out a lot of money yo be able to achieve both goals. It is a fun hobby. Nothing more. Thanks for commenting

  1. Around 1985, somebody knocked on our door in Nottingham, England, and said “You’ve got a really strange bird in your garden!” I went out to look, and it was one of these. I suppose it must have been an escaped cage bird, but it certainly brightened the place up!

  2. Very beautiful. All I can see on my bird table this morning are two pigeons, hopefully the robin’s red breast might brighten the gloom.

    • He was a cutey. I sat watching him hop around for a good fifteen minutes before it occured to me to take a picture of him. Thanks, Abbi.
