Singer in a blooming pear tree

Cardinal bird singing in spring. This friend was singing while I was fixing my back deck, it was so loud that made me look for him. I saw he was very close, he was in a pear tree next to my house and I had time enough to take out my camera and take pictures of him. Definitely he made my day after having a rough day.
