The Cardinals are Dating! Spring is Close!

It's hard to get a picture of both a female and male cardinal together. When they nest, they take turns sitting on the eggs so you only see one of them at the feeder. Today I saw a pair of little cardinals at the bird feeder. When cardinals are courting, the male feeds the female. This modern male took advantage of the fact that I procured the food for him to give her but that's okay! Seeing the cardinals performing this mating ritual means that spring is just around the corner! Yipee!
