This is the welcome sign you'll see if you ever enter the state of Virginia,
it has a cardinal, because cardinals are it's state birds.
I also think that it's letting us know that we'll see cardinals all over the place.
But it's fine for me see cardinal all over the place, because I think they're beautiful!
Here in Virginia I get to enjoy cardinals and many other birds from my kitchen window.
It's been about two years since I put up the feeders,
so I was so surprised to see birds eating form them right away.
Just as if I never left!
And this year I got blessed with a cardinal nest right by my bedroom window!
At first I thought the eggs were of a Northern Mocking Bird.
Because when I googled "blue speckled eggs", that's what came up.
But then when I peeked through the window I saw a female cardinal.
I can't wait for these eggs to hatch!
