  • My Valentine arrived a day late, but that doesn't bother me.  I'm just glad he came and we got to hang out.  And he looked very festive - with all the red and everything.
.
By the way, this is # nofilterfriday.  Ok, just found out that was a thing...I really only wanted to emphasize that his vibrant shade of red really IS that vibrant.  Aren't cardinals gorgeous?!
.
Sometimes on cold days when the chickens are cooped up, wild birds will fly into the special needs aviary through large gaps in the chicken wire (this thing dates back probably to the people who farmed here last...in the 70s). Once they get in, they get scared and can't see how to get out.
.
And I have to prop the door open and get behind them so they fly towards it.  This just started happening, really, so I'm going to start always propping the door open when not in use.
.
Today, when I went to scare them towards the door (not on purpose, but you know...that's how it works), this cardinal tried to jam himself through a too small chicken wire opening.  Got his head stuck through, and unable to get out.  He bit me with that big beak when I saved him.  But I don't blame him.
.
At least I didn't absentmindedly kiss him on the head like the cardinal I rehabilitated a year back.  The bite hurts worse when it's on your lip.  They clamp down and hold on!  It is nothing in comparison to a macaw bite, though, so I just thought his little chomp was cute this time.
.
Look at his little feets hanging on to my finger! 😍  Oh - that blood isn't from him.  Slammed my finger in the door yesterday. Anyway, he flew off into the snowy sky as soon as I snapped his pic.  What does it signify when you see cardinals?  What about when you hold one?
.
I feel like it should be some sort of good omen.  Never did I think that I would hold a wild cardinal in my life!  Much less TWO!  Within a year or so!  Gettin' all Snow White...or maybe Cinderella...up in here.
.
Happy day after Valentine's Day from me and my cardinal friend. ❤

  • *My opinion on the 2019 draft*
I think that the Arizona Cardinals should trade out of the one spot and at most fall back to . My reason for this is that not only will we be getting a ton of picks and maybe a player, but we will also be able to draft Quinnen Williams. The 49ers are not in need of him and will most likely draft pass rusher Nick Bosa or a LB, the Jets will probably try and get someone to help Darnold whether it's a linemen or receiver, and the Raiders are after Kyler Murray. As of the top prospects in the draft I'd have to rank Williams atop the list with many similar skills as Aaron Donald. He could be the solution for our interior run defense!! I'm not sure about you guys but it makes me furious that teams can run with their 3rd string backs on interior runs for 4-6 yards every down🙄
