, I think my American bird book (yep, I had to buy one so I could colour all my birds stamps properly) just shows nice bright red winter cardinals. It's one of my dreams to see them in real life one day - now I know it needs to be winter, LOL. Thanks for that warning...
Actually, it's still Monday here. 4 in the afternoon, so nearly time to go and prep the coffee for when DH gets in from work.
