In 1887, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle gave the world their first glimpse of one of literature’s most beloved characters, Sherlock Holmes. Today I pay homage to Sir Doyle with my own study in scarlet.
And what better bird to represent this study than the Northern Cardinal.
Sherlock Holmes may be literature’s favorite detective, but the Northern Cardinal is one of our most popular songbirds, easily recognized by its scarlet feathers.
Even the female is her own study.
I won’t limit this study to just the Northern Cardinal though. How about the Red-Bellied Woodpecker?
And this House Finch adds a splash of color to our study.
We’ll let the scarlet berries do the talking with this early spring arrival, the American Robin.
How’s that for a study in scarlet Sir Doyle? Care to comment?
Blessed be :}
