AND THE WINNER OF THE SONGBIRD VOICE CONTEST IS: THE MALE CARDINAL!!


Hi Everybody!!
We had a competition here at the Bird Sanctuary for the best singing voice of a songbird. With all the nests, songbirds have been singing from dawn to dusk. The babies know their parents' voice by the time the egg hatches! The scarlet red male cardinal is the first place winner. Second  goes to the little chickadees. The persistent  mockingbird flies into third place. The mocker has more songs and range, but he has a bad attitude and bullies the other birds. The cardinal welcomes all the migrants in a very caring manner, as he shows them the feeding stations and water holes. Enjoy!
