We are fortunate to have northern cardinals in our gardens year round. They frequent the bird feeders but this is the first year they've tackled the peanut feeder tube.
Here's the male thinking about it as I'm sure he's been watching the woodpeckers, nuthatches and chickadees cling to the metal mesh. How hard can it be?
A bit of wing flapping until he gets a grip with his feet and then stick your face in where all the yummy peanuts are!
The female landed on the peanut feeder but is content to eat safflower seeds from a platform style feeder. Below she is seen at the birdbath in winter. I added a faint texture behind her so her body wasn't lost against the white snow.
Of course mom and dad bring the babies to learn how to eat from a feeder too.
There are lots of cardinals inside too, mostly in the kitchen where you can see my cutting board top right. The bird in the bottom left is on a throw, a warm and cozy addition across my lap when reading on a cold winter day.
If you don't get cardinals in your yard, I hope you enjoyed the ones I've shared.
