Bunny Snow February 25, 2010

It's been a cold winter for the birds, Judy, and you've captured this cardinal beautifully trying to stay warm using his feathers to capture all the insulation he could muster.

The Cockatiel (Nymphicus hollandicus), which I've been feeding this year came back to my feeders today. It was a miracle to have seen him alive after many 32 degree to 11 degree mornings this winter. He must have some place to go to stay warm, otherwise he could not survive.

It's worth the small fortune I've spent bird seed, as they give me so much pleasure and hope.

Congratulations! Your work is so inspiring!!! #8416690

Danny B. Head February 25, 2010
