A family of Northern Cardinal birds has made its home in the shrubbery along my street here recently. The neighbor’s bird feeder and bird bath are big draws for a lot of songbirds now. It has been hot and stormy so the birds like to grab a snack and cool off in that inviting bird bath water.
The cardinals eat seeds and sometimes enjoy an insect or two but mostly are seed and nut eating birds. A more distant neighbor on the next street over has a small flower garden with a couple of Sunflowers that are now blooming. The birds are really going to go wild over that! So many lovely little songbirds now. I am enjoying getting to do some bird watching in between thunderstorms!
