I see this just as Jack told me a big red male cardinal was fighting a sparrow at the feeder outside our window! So far we've been spared the snow, but it's on the way. This is a stunning photo -- Joannie is right, it would be a fantastic card! #8193877

Val Feldman level-deluxe December 05, 2009

Have a great weekend! #8194033
