Red bird come hither
gliding softly through the snow
stay with me awhile
The first snow of the season brought something new and unexpected to our backyard: cardinals. They were so striking that I thought it would be great to have them visit all the time. My husband told me that we would not be able to accomplish this feat. Behold a visit to the local Wal-Everything Store and the bird food aisle. There I found Premium Cardinal Seed Blend with safflowers and sunflowers seed mixed in. I am happy to report that I have proven him wrong. He has since worked out a successful system of feeding the “mafia” doves away from the cardinals. No seriously, these doves are Mob Wives’ fans.
