I'm not sure if everyone else has problems photographing these beauties, but here locally they are THE most skittish bird in my yard. The moment they spy me in the window, *woosh* and they're gone, leaving me with sparrows and finches. I took this tonight after a snow where he was roosting in a spruce. I've known about this roosting spot for a month or more, but until tonight its had a finch roosting there at night. When I looked tonight after the snow had ended I was pleasantly surprised to see a male Cardinal. C&C welcomed!
