You may not realize this but we cardinals are a well-mannered bunch.
When we see that someone has cared enough about us to offer a bird buffet, we show up nicely groomed. You know, every hair in place.
Before digging in, we bow our heads in prayers of thanks.
At times we get overly excited and drop our food.
That's okay because our large hummingbird friend is very patient with us.
He just sits quietly and allows us to finish our meal.
Speaking of friends, when we spot a friend waiting in line for the buffet we know the importance of sharing the bounty.
We fly into the nearest tree and allow others to have a turn.
After all, there is plenty for everybody.
