Their diet is mostly made up of plant matter such as leaf buds, flowers, seeds of weeds and grasses, and many wild fruits and berries. Unlike other songbirds, both male and female cardinals sing. Male cardinals sing to defend their nesting territory.

They aggressively attack any intruders. The song of female cardinals appears to give males information about whether to bring food to the nest. Cardinals have many different songs and calls. Cardinals are social and gather in flocks, sometimes even flocks that include birds of other species. Once a male and female cardinal pair up, they stay together for life.
While the female cardinal incubates the eggs sits on them , the male cardinal feeds her. There are usually eggs, although there are sometimes two or even five. After days, the eggs hatch. Both parents help feed the young cardinals. The young cardinals can leave the nest about days after hatching.
Cowbirds are especially dangerous for young cardinals, and female cowbirds may remove cardinal eggs from the nest.
Cardinals also face competition for nesting territory from birds like house wrens, crows, and English sparrows. Pesticides can be harmful to cardinals, and so can windows. Overall, however, the cardinal population appears to be increasing. The species is unlikely to be endangered any time soon. Add to Watchlist. People who viewed this item also viewed.

For all that we are still family, called together by grace, caught up in the love of God. This is where St John Henry comes in, for he is the saint of this age as well as of his own, and thus we rejoice both at his canonisation: more appropriately we learn from his life and seek his intercessions. It is easy to find faults in St John Henry.
He was polemical, sarcastic, acerbic in his writings, thin skinned in his sensitivities, not least in his comments in Apologia pro vita sua, his justification, in attacking those such as Kingsley, who had attacked him. St John Henry was not a victim taking the way of the cross without protest, but a complainant with much talk of integrity and honour. However, when he speaks of his journey to the Catholic Church as he began to doubt his own salvation if separated from Rome, of his long struggles to reintroduce the patristic faith to the life of the English church, of his doubts eventually that it was a church at all, we see into the very heart of a man wrestling with God, with conscience and with the church.
St John Henry stands as a model of the purposeful disciple. We may disagree with his actions, but we know their origins — he pretends to little — and we see their structures.
The care for salvation, the passion for truth, the desire for holiness, are apparent and more apparent than the weaknesses. If we want perfection in saints, give up. There are no perfect saints, but we have as witnesses to our struggles the great crowd of witnesses who are sanctified not by their own efforts, but by a particular openness to grace, an unusual, utterly entrancing willingness to be the person whom God is calling. It speaks of eternity as the goal of our journey, of the flock of God not as a football team to be chosen but as a nation created through Christ in which we must belong and find our calling and purpose.
It speaks of truth being sought across human made ecclesial divisions, and of the sweet and hope filled tragedy of our distances being bridgable by a soul seeking God. It speaks of a good shepherd, who nurtures his own soul and becomes the pastor of the souls and lives and eternity of others. The reading from I Peter is the last appearance in scripture, at least last in the order in which the books are set out, of the oldest parable of the bible, the shepherd.
Its first sign as a parable is the shepherd psalm, From there it surfaces in many places. The shepherds of Israel are good, bad or ugly, but God is always THE shepherd, the ultimate good shepherd, who guards his flock and guides them to green pasture. Jesus makes his strongest and most unambiguous claim to divinity when he calls himself the good shepherd, for the Shepherd psalm is clear beyond question that the good shepherd is the Lord.
And it is the call of Bishops and Presbyters, and then of the whole church, to be imitators of the proto Shepherd, to be the pastors of all the lost and suffering souls of this dark world.

For that to happen in reality we are commanded to follow certain standards, standards that St John Henry himself knew and sought. There must first be a willingness to be identified with the flock of God. We are to be fellow shepherds. Thus we must be open about our allegiance to Christ, and willingness implies a readiness to go where ever our duty takes us.
