  1. Great thoughts! Your cardinal was fluffing his feathers to keep warm. Must have got carried away and fluffed them more than normal. 🙂

    1. Well, the cardinal in the picture wasn’t the one I saw today. But the one I saw — and another bird I saw today — looked really round and fat. Can they fluff their feathers and not look like they’re moving at all? It didn’t like feathers were moving or that they were even moving until they flew away.

      1. They don’t wave their feathers, they just fluff them out. “By fluffing its feathers, a bird traps many tiny pockets of air to hold in body heat and keep out the cold….When the weather is hot, the bird presses its feathers close to its body to eliminate the insulating air pockets so that body heat is allowed to escape..”
