Welcome to Columbia/Adair Co., KY - Home of Count Cardinal

Welcome to
Count Cardinal, the wonderful bird which symbolizes the annual Great Backyard Bird Count, (this year February 17-20, 2012) was photographed by Barbara Armitage at the Farm at Tucker's Station. The beautiful bird has been a frequent and amusing breakfast guest, pecking on the window as Barbara and Wayne had breakfast, as though it were the humans being. Maybe, maybe not, but we like to think it was that way. Humans and animals seem to have the same ability to connect with each other here, a reflection of the way people also treat people here. Count Cardinal file photo from CM archives, first posted over two years ago on January 12, 2010. Photo by Barbara Armitage.
