Cardinal Rule

Feed the birds
Because the Cardinal is a non migratory bird it can be enjoyed throughout the entire year. During the winter months this fireball in snow really enjoys backyard feeders.

One sure fire way to see this beauty is to fill the feeders in your yard regularly.

One of the Cardinal's favorite foods is black-oil sunflower seeds.

Other good food choices are cracked corn and millet.

Safflower seed, fruit and nutty mixtures are a nice treat for Cardinals.

Illinois is one of the lucky states to claim The Northern Cardinal as our State bird.
Six other states declare the Cardinal as State bird they include Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia.
The female and male are equally striking.

If you feed them they will come.

And you will smile.

Feed the birds .... satisfaction guaranteed.
