A frequent contributor to our photo pool, Ted Roger Karson’s pictures reveal how much amazing nature can be right in your own backyard—like this vivid cardinal. You can discover the amazing birds that live in your area by participating in The Great Backyard Bird Count, which runs today through February 16. Learn more about how to join the count here.

And if you do snap some great shots while counting our winged friends this weekend, don't forget to add them to the TreeHugger Reader Photo Pool on Flickr to be considered to be featured as our photo of the day!
