My Gardening Buddy
This is Chirpy - I've named this male cardinal such as he follows me around the yard, from bush to tree, while I garden and chirps away constantly.
I know he really just wants me to bring out more seed so he can chow.
And how do I know this? Well, Chirpy sits every morning outside the breakfast nook window and talks at me until I get off my hiney and take him some sunflower seeds.
I've never had such interaction with a bird before. I find him quite charming and a little "dog-like"
And here's another portrait of Chirpy - just because he's so darn handsome!
He does have a Mrs. Chirps! She's very attractive with her olive-green and lighter red coloring. We don't see her as much. I figure she's tending to the nest somewhere. But I'm always happy when she returns to the yard, so I know she's doing okay.
