Cardinals!!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, February 23, 2020




Cardinals stay all winter in my neighbourhood. They're not particularly active . . . and their feathers (both male and female) are rather subdued. .

They come to our feeders: but not every day. .

And I see them on my lunch time walks too. They are mostly silent, although sometimes I do hear them calling. They have a huge range of different calls and songs.

But but but . . . today was the FIRST day I heard cardinals singing before dawn. Singing the sun up!!

And that sun up song, at least in my neighbourhood, goes like this:

CHEER! CHEER! CHEER! wick wick wick wick wick wick!.

CHEER! CHEER! CHEER! wick wick wick wick wick wick!

Spring is coming. The cardinals are singing the sun up!!
