I know I'm not the only one that loves cardinals. The male Northern Cardinal is perhaps responsible for getting more people to open up a field guide than any other bird. They're a perfect combination of familiarity and style: a shade of red you can't take your eyes off. Even the brown females sport a sharp crest and warm red accents. Cardinals are breathtaking in winter's snowy backyards. In summer, their sweet whistles are one of the first sounds of the morning.
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, my heart is into hearts. I found the instructions for Tweet Treats at the FamilyFun.com site and used my heart shaped cookie cutters to make treats for the birds. I took these pictures just before Old Man Winter arrived.
A fun project to make with children too.
Thank you for stopping by! I am joining Seasonal Sunday.
