My Dad has a soft spot for the feathered creatures and in the snowy weather he throws seed on top of the snow on our deck, as well as filling two feeders with food for them. This pretty little female cardinal came by the other morning for a snack. We even had a hawk swoop past the other day! We think it was hopeful of catching one of the small birds. I enjoy watching the little birds on the deck, but after a while I get sleepy from it and have to nap.
