Cardinals in “Stormy Retreat” by Rick Beaver
A recognizable and brilliantly-coloured songbird, cardinals are found in and around woodland, brushy swamps, and gardens. Males are bright red with a black mask, red crest and red bill. Females are olive brown with red colouring their wings, tail, crest and bill.
Cardinals have made their way further north over the years, and are commonly seen year-round in southern and central Ontario. Their diet mainly consists of insects and vegetable material – including seeds from backyard bird feeders, which makes them a favourite among backyard bird watchers.
