Attracting Cardinals & Songbirds

There’s a bright splash of brilliant red at the feeder. A Northern Cardinal has found the black oil sunflower seeds and is cracking one open with his big beak.  He flies off into some dense shrubs and sings out to his mate who responds from the birdbath where she’s been taking a quick dip.

You’ve provided four of the basic needs for a Cardinal – food , shelter, a place to nest,  and water. Cardinals are generally ground feeders but can be seen at larger, more stable feeders or those with seed trays.  Cardinals don’t migrate so keep you feeders filled so they know they can count on food in your garden. They’ll be more inclined to stick around if you have dogwoods, clematis and other vines, Viburnum , junipers and other thick shelter – especially those that provide food, too. They may raise several broods each year in your thick shrubs.

If you have lots of glass, try using Cardinal Alert or Window Alert decals to protect them from battering the window. They are very territorial and will try to scare away the ‘competition’.
