What happened to the cardinals?
This photo was taken at the bird feeder in Jan of 10. Lots of cardinals as we have had for many years. This year I have seen very few cardinals at the feeder, a couple males and a couple females or juveniles at one time is the best it gets. I figured if it snowed, they would show up in flocks again, but it didn't happen. There are still just a few, no more than 5 or 6. Any ideas as to what happened to the cardinals? Could it be because I'm feeding straight sunflower seeds instead of a corn/mixed seed blend?
