Lunchtime


I caught this male northern cardinal chowing down on safflower seeds that I had set out for the few birds that will eat them. European starlings and common grackles won’t touch the seeds. So if they are hogging the other feeders that contain black oil sunflower seeds, the cardinals and other songbirds help themselves to the bleach-white offerings.

“Lunchtime” is my Photo of the Week.

  1. Safflower seeds wow I did not know that. The starlings, grackles and red wing blackbirds are devouring my black oil sunflower seeds. I am going to look into that, I hope they are not too expensive!! I had to stop feeding the birds altogether for now!! Thanks for the beautiful cardinal and all the other beauties you share with us!!
