New also from West Coast to the East!

I have a question re behavior of just one female cardinal. She is the only bird of this species here to figure out how to perch at the tube feeder. None of the other cardinals have managed this. I enjoy watching her as she has to beat her wings furiously to stay in place but she manages.

Do others out there have cardinals perch at a tube feeder, even though briefly, and take seeds?

I am excited to learn of the species new to me coming to my feeder here!

Hi theposse and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.

Very, very sadly, I don't get cardinals at my feeders. But some of my birds do seem to manage things that their peers can't.

Hi theposse and welcome to Birdforum. No idea about Cardinals sorry. We do have some Robins that have managed to sit on the seed feeders whilst others are happy to pick up the scraps.

Hi there and a warm welcome to you from Myrtle Beach

Having dozens of Northern Cardinals, some feed at the feeders and others feed on the ground. Give it some time. When they are hungry they will perch

Robins? Great! I am just learning to use this forum so I'll be lame for awhile. LOL Just had a pair of Robins nest(twice)in my neighbors carport! What fun watching the parents raise those four babies, then once they fledged they laid more eggs and those have hatched! I did not realize that here in the South they would raise two broods! Fun!
