we have cardinals all year round - & they are monogamous. i can't whistle very well, but can mimic a male cardinal pretty well & one specifically will follow me around the yard while we sing to each other. i have baffles on the poles for all my feeders that the squirrels can't crawl around, but once in a while i get an acrobat that gets on the clothesline & then my BB gun comes out. i throw enough seed on the ground for groundfeeding birds & the squirrels are welcome to it- but that is never enough for them. the greedy bastards.

You can practice your pitch by listening to this:

Cardinals are my favorite, by far, and I really like the color of the females, the red and grey are beautiful together.

This afternoon when I went outside I was greeted by the sweet sound of the summer birds, a big flock of starlings chirping and singing away in the next door neighbor's giant elms.

Is that ballistic gel in your pic? Can't figure out what those 3 things in the center are: lipstick, crayons?

Specifically, Cardinals.
We have a pair that pays us a daily visit. They love whole Peanuts and Sunflower seeds. Problem is, so do the Squirrels. Damn tree rats hoover them up as soon as we put them out.
Solution: White Safflower seed.
Cardinals love them, vermin does not.
Our baby cardinals last spring;
