Red-bellied Woodpeckers will gather up nuts, acorn, pine cones, seeds, etc to hide in the cracks and barks of trees to store for a later time to eat them. We had a woodpecker to hide a few nuts in the cracks of our deck railing. This is a male woodpecker.
Cardinals in the winter months
In the winter months the cardinals don’t feel the need to guard their territory. One of the reasons is that it isn’t breeding season. Because the cardinal’s eat the same type of food and will look for the same type of shelter, they will join up with other cardinals. The cardinals chances for finding food and shelter is higher being in a group, more eyes to find food, etc.
The wrens are sensitive to cold weather; we have a few bush piles out in our field for the birds to use, to hide in or to use as a place to sleep. They will also use bird houses for sheltered.
There are other places that they may use to roost at night; the eaves on the front or back porches. They will also look for natural places to roost; tree stumps, or tree cavities, etc. They may roost in garages, barns, or old bird nests.
Some of the food that Wild turkeys will eat; fruit, seeds, nuts, and insects, and perhaps small lizards. Their wingspan can be as wide as 6 feet. Guess where the wild turkey got its name? Their name comes from the nation of Turkey.
Way back in time, European visitors to American saw the bird, and it reminded them of their bird back home, know as a Turkey bird.
