Winter ! NO Thanks

This is the Northern Cardinal, and his reaction to winter!
Cardinalis cardinalis 8-9 inches male a familiar, non-migrating bird here in Pennsylvania

Glad some of you celebrated Rabbie Burns Day-- a favorite holiday for the many Scots in the USA.

John and I are packing, making our house winter secure, etc. We will be traveling to Indiana for some family concerns, hoping for a break in the weather. I will attempt to look in but that is unlikely for a few days.

PS: Thank you so much for the given UA. Sorry to be so late in saying thank you - been a bit unwell, nothing to worry about, but made it difficult to work at the computer.

As he is sitting on the snow, perhaps he does not mind it so much. Jenn, I hope your trip is good and healing for you and John. Good travels. Perhaps there will be some opportunities for your camera to come out while you are with John's family in Indiana...or on the way, if you are driving.

A cracking shot of this handsome male cardinal Jenn, thankfully we've avoided the snow this year. However we've had day after day with rain and everywhere is thoroughly saturated

Trying to do a little catching up. So glad I got to this one in time to give a UA.
I hope you are surviving the winter of 2013/2014. It's difficult to believe pounding of snow and cold that PA is taking.
