This bright red Male Cardinal comes to the feeders at our home in Southeast Missouri with its mate. They rule the roost when they are near the feeders since they are larger and more aggressive than the smaller wild birds. They are a favorite in our area because we live about 100 miles south of St. Louis Missouri and the Male Cardinal is the mascot of the National League Baseball Team commonly called the St. Louis Cardinals.
