Lovely Christmas cards in this thread. They have reminded me of a bird from our Lower Rio Grande Valley trip, back in 2011.

Pyrrhuloxia, sometimes called the Southern Cardinal.

Merry Christmas to all,

Very very nice photos, beautiful birds, and thanks for info about name/specie! (Compositionally I would prefer less centered, but that is a matter of taste)

Saw 4 different eagles at the Sacramento NWR this morning, which is nice, but most of the time they were not in a great area to get a shot. Still managed a few I like and I can't imagine a nicer way to spend Christmas day :-).

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Merry Christmas to all,

The 'southerns' are even more beautiful. Great capture.
