OMG a cardinal!

pameladean this is all your fault.

I know cardinals are just red birds, just birds like the birds that usually come and eat the cold-weather food I put out on the balcony. But I didn't grow up with them and we're right at the end of their winter range, so I hardly ever see them, and they're a very unusual colour and I know they're not really magic but I read the Secret Country books before I'd ever seen one at all.

Right now there's a cardinal out there eating a piece of dried papaya and I'd only be slightly more excited if it was a unicorn.
