A lone song rings out across the hill as stepped out for a breath of fresh air. I’ve come to call the male Cardnial that frequents my land “the Red King”. Like all male Cardnials he finds the highest perch he can for his song.
If you sit and actively listen to them his gives a short chirp between songs. He’s answering his mate in the lower branches.
Typically, female Cardnials stay in the lower branches.
Male and female Cardnials stay in constant communication. The experts say that they actually develop local dialects.
Images are titled “Male and Female Cardnials 41318” and available as a set or separately.
Their language is sophisticated enough for the female Cardnial to actually give the instructions about what to bring back to the nest.

Cardnials mate for life and when the nest is active the female stays with the babies to ward off predators. So ordering takeout kinda makes sense.
The Red King calls a few minutes and sure enough an answer is heard coming from a thicket on the other side of the property and the Red King darts off to his queen. I’m betting that he stopped by the feeder to pick up some thistle seed on his way home. 😉
