Bluejay in snow

Although Bluejays and Cardinals are common around here, they generally don't get close enough for good photographs.

Cardinals in particular are more likely to come to your feeder in the evening when the light is low and will not let you get within more than about 8m (24ft).

Winter makes them a little less reticent - especially when there is snow on the ground. The feeder becomes a much bigger attraction and if you are still, you can wait for them to come.
