What can I tell you? Aren't the colors in this photo amazing? Ever seen a cardinal (namely the bird, silly) up close? Me neither until that Friday afternoon in New York in late May when a neighbor ran over to my animal loving nephew and frantically asked for help in removing this lovely bird from their home.
The story wasn't clear exactly, but it did involve a freshly baked kugel cooling on the counter, and this stunning cardinal red bird who unfortunately got a bit injured while possibly trying to taste some of that kugel. Can't blame him really. So, my fearless 12 year old nephew gladly removed the bird and posed for this photo before placing the bird in a bush, hopefully out of reach of any lurking cats. Shortly there after the cardinal took flight and found a safer perch high in the branches of a towering elm tree. We all took a great sigh of relief. What are the chances that your nephew will just happen to be wearing the perfect color when a cardinal stops by, or that he happens to grab a plastic bag with blue lettering to complete the color story?
