Cardinal & Hog

It’s been fairly quiet here today…One Raccoon came in but left as soon as I opened the door. I wasn’t able to get a picture of the Painted Bunting…but this Cardinal was kind enough to pose for a couple.


It’s really a very pretty bird.


A little later this hog decided to stop in and see if the turkeys and rabbits left any corn in the grass.


Maybe I’ll have better luck with the Bunting tomorrow. I saw 3 males yesterday.


  1. Beautiful shots. I hope you get your Bunting shots soon. Helen

  2. The female Cardinal is beautiful. I hope you can get more pictures of the painted buntings because we don't have them here. The wild hog is unusual, too.

  3. Nice!
    That feral hog looks well fed.

  4. She's a beauty and looking rather coyly at you. I filled my feeders for the first time and saw a red male cardinal in the bushes giving them the eye.
    The hog doesn't look entirely wild, but hungry and an opportunist. I expect I'll be seeing the javelina soon. Great captures.

  5. Lovely shots Carol, and a lovely bird to have visiting.

  6. You do have wild hogs then? That is a nice picture of the female cardinal. They have all left up here. It is 21 degrees here in Ohio where I live as I write this.

  7. Wow Carol, You do have the 'wildlife' down there... We have quite a bit of it up here also (since they are protected)--but I've never seen a hog around...

    We do have deer, raccoons, possums, skunks, etc....

    Have a great day. We have snow here this morning.

  8. Beautiful shots of the cardinal! Are the hogs dangerous? I'm not sure how I would react if I saw one of those in my yard!


Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the time you take to make a comment......If you ask a question, I will try to answer it here.
