Northern Cardinal

Northern Cardinal

 

The Northern Cardinal is easily recognized by its vibrant red color. The brighter the male, the more plentiful the food is in its territory and the better its chance of bearing offspring.

 

As she sits on the nest, the female Northern Cardinal sings, perhaps communicating to the male Northern Cardinal about the need for more food for the hatchlings or about possible dangers lurking nearby.

Nesting Habits of the Northern Cardinal

 

The bowl-shaped nest of the Northern Cardinal is constructed of leaves, stems and twigs and usually has soft grass on the inside.

 

The female Northern Cardinal deposits about 3 eggs into the nest, sitting on them for 11-13 days. The baby Northern Cardinal chicks will hatch and leave the nest in another 7-13 days to embark on their new lives on this great big planet!
