As I was getting dinner in the oven I looked out the window to a flock of cardinals. I had to get kt & husband to help me count - final count as of 5 minutes ago 26 cardinals feeding in my backyard sanctuary. The bright red against the snow is breath taking..... I'll have to refill all the feeders tomorrow morning. I'm sorry if I've posted on my critter count - don't mean to be repetitive. A sight like this just lifts my heart.
