hidden – natures camouflage

The Virginia state bird is the Cardinal and the state tree is the Dogwood.  In our area, thankfully we escaped the destruction from Sandy.

During the storm a branch fell out of a nearby tree knocking one of my bird feeders off the pole and cracking the plastic.  A little seed remained inside, just below the crack.  I hung the feeder in a dogwood tree and within minutes birds flocked.

A pair of cardinals arrived first.  She was rather shy preferring to remain hidden.  Bright, bold and beautiful he quickly landed on the feeder and ate to his heart’s content.

Can you find her?
