Sir Cardinal came to visit In his red coat and his hat And soon began to sing and dance As in our tree he sat And while I listened to his tune His Lady flitted down She had come to join him dressed In quiet grayish brown Then with her song reminding him Of nest and eggs and young And how his heart must turn to home Before his day was done!

I love this Pastor Pete and truly fitting to the cardinal. I enjoy their springtime song. Usually, they are the first birds I hear in the morning when I take the dogs out before dawn. I think they like to get a jumpstart on all the other music makers in the neighborhood.
All year we have a mockingbird in our little tree but lately this Cardinal has been showing up. Today he is alone, but last week when I wrote this his lady friend joined him (but on a separate branch).
