A small group of cardinals was busy in the trees in the backyard today. They could have been the cardinals that have been living around here for several years, or they could have been other cardinals passing through.There were at least 2 males, maybe more, and at least 2 females.  The bright red males stood out against the tree branches and the cloudy white sky.

The cardinals moved in and out of the berry tree, looking for berries.
