North­ern Car­di­nal

Birds & Blooms - - Bird Tales -

While male north­ern car­di­nals are stun­ningly bright and showy, fe­males are no slouches in the cute­ness cat­e­gory ei­ther. They have sub­tle hints of blush that ap­pear as if whim­si­cally painted on. Car­di­nals pre­fer plat­form feed­ers for for­ag­ing on black oil sun­flower and saf­flower feasts. If you don’t have space for an ad­di­tional feeder, add a tray to the bot­tom of your tube feeder to give car­di­nals a place to perch and eat.
