Named the Northern Cardinals because the other six cardinal species are located in South America, these birds prefer to feed on the ground but they will perch at hopper feeders and tube feeders.

Their favorite food is oil sunflower and safflower seeds, and many times they will choose the seed that’s easiest to open. Northern Cardinals will visit feeders at any time of day but are typically the most numerous at dusk or dawn and are often the first and last birds at the feeders.
