Because Cardinals don’t migrate, that helps to keep their stress level down, which in turn helps to give them a long life span.
March is when the breeding season starts for the cardinals and can run as late as September. The cardinals will protect their territory from other cardinals doing that time.
The cardinals here are males.
The Baltimore Oriole likes ripe, dark-colored fruit; cherries, mulberries ,dark grapes, etc. Besides the fruit they will eat; insects, spiders, grasshoppers, beetles, caterpillars, and fall web worms, just to name a few.
To attract the Orioles to your yard, put out oranges and ripe dark grapes that have been cut in half. Plus plant nectar-bearing flowers, and crab apple trees, etc.
The Baltimore Oriole will breed in North America and will migrate to Central and South America for the winter.
Singing is the way that birds talk to each other. They sing to attract a mate or to defend its territory. It is the male bird that sings most of the songs. The female prefers to mate with a male that sings the best complex songs.
Some say that birds singing can also be a way for them to get rid of some extra fat. A bird that sings loud and for a long time while looking strong and healthy will show the female that he would make a good mate.
This wren is singing in different directions so that its singing can be heard all around him, front, back and sides
