Waiting for Spring, by Gavin Day

A major snowstorm was passing through Toronto so I went down to a park along Lake Ontario where I know Cardinals and chickadees are regular residents. I brought along some sunflower seeds and expected the chickadees to be quite eager for a few handout. I didn’t expect the cardinals to get as close as they did but I scattered some seeds along the ground and they come just a few feet away from me and it allowed me to get this picture and others like it!
