WVPE's latest Photo of the Week features a Northern Cardinal sitting in an ice-covered bush. Thanks to Larry Ford for sharing this image that he took on January 2nd in his back yard in Elkhart County just south of Elkhart. Larry says the bird's crest was raised and that it often sits in this bush if its mate is at the bird feeder. Larry says the male cardinal maintains a lookout for her.
