These two mates return in early evening to eat after all the other birds and squirrels have retired for the night...The Cardinals like their privacy. During the day the squirrels tend to monopolize the feeder. . It is interesting that they have their own ritual that differs from the other wild birds who prefer to eat in the day time but that's what sets them apart. If I had not been feeding them over the years I would not have known this, but you get to know the mannerisms of the species by studying their behavior when they come to the feeder and through them allowing me to shoot their pictures. That does not happen over night.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!
