The Cardinal… nice to see you again :)

I live in South Texas. On a normal day I can see mockingbirds (annoying little guys), woodpeckers, and even green parrots roosting on power lines. Over the past year, the El Niño phenomenon has dropped a lot of rain in the area, and basically eradicated the drought conditions we were under for the past few decades.

Now, we’re starting to see birds and other wildlife that hadn’t been around for many years. The Cardinal is one type specifically that has made its home here once again. In fact, this morning I saw a whole colony of them looking around for food. Here’s one little guy who seemed to be cool with the idea of me snapping his pic:

Their song is very pleasing as well, not like the squawking of the mockingbirds and chachalacas.

Welcome back Cardinals. We’re happy to see you 🙂
