You all know I am a BIG fan of cardinals. (They remind me so much of my mom.) I especially enjoy pictures of them in the snow when the male and female are both present. While eating lunch at a local restaurant this week, I saw something I thought was unusual. I was sitting near the window and could see onto the patio. It was pouring down rain, and a female cardinal was sitting under an outdoor wrought iron table. It was not keeping her dry because rain kept pouring through the holes. She did not seem to mind at all. She would get soaking wet and then just shake all the water off and fly under another nearby table. She stayed in the rain instead of seeking shelter. I always thought birds sought shelter and did not like to get wet. Well.. not this one. I enjoyed watching her for about twenty minutes.. then it was time to get back to work. It was nice to enjoy such a beautiful sight on an otherwise dreary day.
