Nature Notes: Birds enjoying an unseasonably warm weekend

This weekend was unseasonably warm and the birds had a lot of fun.
I'm glad that it's going to turn cold again on Christmas eve because it doesn't seem right to me when there isn't a nip in the air at Christmas. 
The first shot of the female cardinal and the one below look to me like she's singing in the bath.
The second shot is a sparrow and below is a male cardinal.
The carolina wren below is finding pieces of nuts from the trees.
Last is a little junco blending into the deck.
Happy Christmas! Click for Nature Notes home.

How did I miss this earlier? Thank you for it -- as beautiful as any Christmas card! (Cardinals always remind me of Christmas cards anyway -- especially this time of year.
