Red Gallery – Northern Cardinal
In the winter, cardinals will seek shelter in evergreen trees and shrubs. Planting evergreens is a good way to make your yard cardinal friendly.Cardinals prefer thickly covered nest sites and will not nest in bird houses. Planting viney shrubbery like junipers, honeysuckle, grapevines, and dogwoods can provide a place where cardinals will build nests. Because cardinals are ground feeders, they are especially vulnerable to predation by house cats. Make sure to keep your cats inside if you want the birds to feel comfortable in your yard.

Such brilliant red!
Thank you very much Susan. 🙂
Some excellent advice to help the birds!
Definitely! It does attract birds that are looking for nests. In my case, I have the pines and the bushes. My cardinals have been nesting for near 12 years when I had my house built. Thanks John. 🙂
