Birds of Kentucky: American Cardinal in snow covered tree

2011-01-27 - Fortune ST, Columbia, KY - Photo By Linda Waggener.
Elvis, our Kingbird American Cardinal. Because he's the brightest star in the firmament, dominates every gathering, is deferred to as royalty, and is so entertaining, this brightest red cardinal has earned his sobriquet well. No, he hasn't exhibited the mathematical skills of Count Cardinal, but then, outside of meticulously counting the cheeseburgers in his fast food order, The King didn't build his reputation on calculus skills, either. What a grand wild pet. We feed him him only Adair County Wildbird Seed, with Elvis' likeness (we tell him) on every bag.
