Just love cardinals in winter.  (Many in  Arkansas love the St. Louis variety in the summer too.)

  1. I know a cardinal call that works almost every time. I can get them to start chirping can come out of nowhere to see what’s up in their territory — they are very territorial birds. Just thought I’d share that. They are beautiful snow birds.

      1. LOL! I’m thinking Ferris Bueller now!

        The cardinal has a very high pitched single chirp. It is hard for me to explain how to make the sound, but if you put your bottom teeth up inside and against your upper lip and suck fast and hard, you will get a high and pure chirping sound.

        Now, here is the neat thing. Even if you don’t do it perfectly the first time, try it and then listen. Listen for a very high pitched, pure, single chirp. You will hear it. That’s a cardinal and that is the sound you want to imitate. So try to make that same sound using the method I just explained. And you’ll have multiple male cardinals dropping in to check you out.

  2. I’ve nominated you for the Sunshine Award. So pretty here! Visit my “A Bit of Sunshine” entry to pick it up if you want to. 🙂
