Juvenile Cardinal | Manvel, Texas Photographer

I love red birds they are one of my favorite birds.

There have been five juvenile birds hanging out together when I feed. They zip in and out and eat quite a bit. Sometimes a few will eat together and other times I have noticed some are a bit bossy and chase off the other ones.

They are starting to change colors I love it when I can capture them in this stage of their life. The females get the red on their crowns, wings and tails and the males get a bright red all over.

Look at that confidence this female has while guarding her seed.
