A red-bellied woodpecker and his fancy friends
Watch closeups of a woodpecker and his fancy friends—the blue jay, the house finch, and male and female cardinals. Press play and then click the "Full screen" button in the bottom right corner of the video window for a larger view.
Recently, GazetteXtra reader Judy from Orfordville asked what we feed cardinals. We fill our feeding stations along the Rock River with sunflower kernels, peanuts, sunflower seeds, safflower seeds, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, raisins and cranberries. The brand is Wild Delight Nut N' Berry.
