I agree! Will I live to see this come to pass… I doubt it but it won’t hurt hoping our children see it someday. Have a great day and coming weekend!

Hopefully we’ll all live to see it come to pass. MLK is a real hero of mine.
I’ve noticed you’ve shot photos of a few of thes birds. They look like Northern Cardinals, but not exactly. I just checked a field guide, and I’m guessing Pyrrhuloxia, but that doesn’t look quite right either. http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Pyrrhuloxia/id
I wondering if your birds are a hybrid breed or just molting feathers.
By the way, really enjoying your blog.
Thanks Chris! I believe them to be cardinals but I’m no expert on birds. I’ve got a few books on identifying them but they are just basic ones. I believe they are molting. I’m pretty sure they are very young because once at my feeders I actually watched one feeding two others standing nearby. I wasn’t aware that they did that outside a nest setting. You see interesting things when you stop and watch for a while. 🙂 Any information on any of my photos is always appreciated because I love to know as much as I can about the subjects I shoot. Take care and have a great week!
Yes, I just went and looked through the field guide and found photos of juvenile male cardinals and their feathers do have that molted appearance.
Good to know! Thanks for passing on the info. Have a great week!
