The Cardinal Hotel

Yes it's snowing in Atlanta.  When I got home from work today the bird feeders were looking a little empty.  There were a couple or three cardinals as well as Carolina red-wings and finches feeding.  So I added some seed to our triangle feeder, the bowl on the pole, and threw some on the ground. 

Well - they called their friends!  At one point there were 13 male cardinals here along with most of their spouses.  Mr. Whimsey is out right now putting more seed out.  It's snowing like the dickens and since birds need much more food in these conditions to keep their energy up and keep warm, we're opening the hotel kitchen.  LOL
Wherever you are, I hope you are safe and warm!


  1. I never saw those birds so really RED so beautiful. They were made to sit in the snow and show their red .......LOl

  2. Hi Jill,

    so it's not hot'lanta, it's chil'lanta...? At 5:30 this morning it was 7 below but the sun is shining. Wish I could get some cardinals at my feeder, I've got lots of doves, sparrows and, sometimes, crows. Used to have lots of song birds and still put out song bird feed but maybe it's too cold for them.

  3. Glad you aren't stuck on the road😁

  4. Hi Jill. How pretty to have so many cardinals in one tree. I have a pair that visit my feeders every day and I love watching them. It was 18 below here in PA this morning. Stay warm and safe.


I'd love to hear what you think.
