Many backyard birds visit my deck feeder. During the winter months there is not a lot of food for them, so they are attracted to the sunflower seeds and peanuts. The cardinals are very smart. They are the first to visit, right at daylight in the mornings, throughout the day, and then right before dark. They seem to choose the times when the other birds are not around.
The males are a bright red and stunning to see. This is a female, smaller and much more subtle than the male.
Having a great day so far today?
