It is said when a red cardinal appears in your yard it is a visitor from heaven.

I want, and need to believe that saying at times!

I loved and lost a few inspirational people in my lifetime. Seeing a red cardinal makes me stop, smile and reflect on all the wonderful wisdom those people passed on to me. 

If only for a split second a silly bird can remind me to smile on my darkest of days.  The best gifts in life can truly be carried in our thoughts, hearts and memories. 

When a Cardinal Enters Your Yard - It's a Visitor From Heaven

It Is Rather Difficult To Miss The Bright Red Male Cardinal

The fire red male cardinal can be see from afar making his presence known, and rather difficult to miss. 

This Is My Space

The males are territorially and will sing loud, clear whistles from the tree tops to defend his territory.

The bird also has a bit of a fiery personality when visiting feeders and backyards. It is fairly common and known to go as far as attacking their own reflection in window glass thinking it is another male.

What A Beautiful Voice You Have

The songs of cardinals are magic to my ears, I will stop and lend a listening ear for all the beautiful songs they sing. 

Have you heard any of their songs?  Say them fast and memorize one of two: “cheeeer-a-dote, cheeer-a-dote-dote-dote”, “purdy, purdy, purdy…whoit, whoit, whoit, whoit”, “what-cheer, what-cheer… wheet, wheet, wheet, wheet” and “cheer, cheer, cheer, what, what, what, what.”
