Signs of Spring

female cardinal

 

I just saw our resident cardinal pair today!  This is the earliest I have ever seen the female back.  The male normally arrives earlier to reestablish his territory then his mate arrives sometime in April.  Cardinals mate for life and of course are the perfect colour for Valentines.
