Northern Cardinal ( MaleΒ  )

What goes ‘peck, bang, peck, bang, peck, bang’ ?

A bunch of chickens in a field full of balloons !

Interesting Fact: The male cardinal fiercely defends its breeding territory from other males. When a male sees its reflection in glass surfaces, it frequently will spend hours fighting the imaginary intruder. ( )


  1. Which is exactly what a male Siamese Fighting fish does – even if it has never seen a real one it its life. This must indicate that the recognition of the visual image is genetically inherited. Interesting. Sally.

  2. what a beautiful face this little fellow has… nicely catched…

  3. Can’t seem to drive that image out of my head now, and laugh with a bit of guilty pleasure at the image of the field of balloons scaring the dickens [or other crude excrement’s] out of those twitchy chickens. Not sure if I am delighted or just hungry.

    The Cardinal is a lovely shot as well. πŸ™‚

    • Hahaha. It makes me happy to see that I got a laugh out of you. I enjoy making people laugh. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my work. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚
