I wish I knew why a sparrow will sit on a bird feeder for half an hour, but a cardinal won't stay more than half a minute. 

When I saw him, he and his female mate were both right there perfectly positioned.  While I grabbed the camera and changed lenses, Mrs. Cardinal took off.  This was the only shot I got with the whole bird in the frame and in focus.

Now every time it snows I stalk back and forth past this window, but no more luck since then.

I posted some pics of a cardinal about a page back, and believe me I know what you mean.  They are incredibly skiddish.  i set up my camera on a tripod (left it on manual focus after i set it), and i hid it behind some plants and used a wireless trigger to set it off.

it took a couple days before it didn't mind the shutter noise.  but those boring little sparrows aren't scared of anything.
