A Pomegranate for the Cardinals
Cardinals are happy to help with that. I cut a dried-up looking pomegranate into bits yesterday -- it was still juicy inside -- and put them on my porch.
A male (above) and female northern cardinal (below) have been visiting ever since. They eat seeds and fruit, so pomegranate pips must seem like the perfect food -- a seed wrapped in a bit of juicy red fruit!
