Nice red birdie… A beautiful northern cardinal visited the bird feeder this morning. I’ve always wanted to film a cardinal from up close, and this time it worked. The bird stayed on the bird feeder for about 3 minutes, which was long enough to get a nice look at it. Birdwatching is fun… It’s nothing like playing “angry birds”. Northern cardinal is the state bird of Illinois. From Wikipedia: The Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) is a North American bird in the genus Cardinalis; it is also known colloquially as the redbird or common cardinal. It can be found in southern Canada, through the eastern United States from Maine to Texas and south through Mexico. It is found in woodlands, gardens, shrublands, and swamps. The Northern Cardinal is a mid-sized songbird with a body length of 21 centimeters (8.3 inches). It has a distinctive crest on the head and a mask on the face which is black in the male and gray in the female. The male is a vibrant red, while the female is a dull red-brown shade. The Northern Cardinal is mainly granivorous, but also feeds on insects and fruit. The male behaves territorially, marking out his territory with song. During courtship, the male feeds seed to the female beak-to-beak. A clutch of three to four eggs is laid, and two to four clutches are produced each year. It was once prized as a pet, but its sale as cage birds is now banned in the United States by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. The Northern Cardinal is one of three …

Outside of view of the nest cam things were going on. The male and Female Northern Cardinal can be seen bringing food to their nestling.

i have to build a northern cardinal nest for science class but i dont have any ideas about how to make it. help please!
Northern Cardinal hangs out in lilac bush outside my window singing, well the a couple weeks ago i started whistling to it. NOW every morning he/she is in the bush singing, waiting for a response which i DONT give. Sometimes during the day ill whistle back, but it really seems like he/she is around the house 10 of the 12 hours of daylight. Is it lonely or? It also keeps slamming into this ONE window (right below mine), which thankfully has a screen over it so he/she just bounces off and hangs out in the tree. This has been going on for months and i just wanna know whats going on with this bird!! If it helps, the flying into the window thing started BEFORE the whistling/singing.
well i didnt think it was responding to me, but it listens and sings to me right after i whistle then comes closer and closer to my screen where i am. Its also hanging out in that tree singing in the mornings where it never did before. Normally i wouldnt think any wild bird would ever pay attention to a human whistle, i know they are nothing alike, but it really seems like its responding. In the winter, our cardinals stay because we always see them at the feeder (which is at the opposite side of the house and isnt filled during summer). Currently, i havent seen any other cardinals around, just him/her. But they are also usually really shy so maybe i just dont notice them esp with no seed in the feeder? Idk i just feel really bad for this lonely one
