    That’s so relaxing. I wanted it to go on for 5 minutes. Just what we need now!

    Cardinals are one of my favorite birds. We live in Idaho now and there are none. But I enjoy them when we visit family in North Carolina. Loved the video.

    Sweet sound. Love cardinals.

  • Norman Criswick

    Ok when do I get my gold disc, for hitting them high notes.

    Still and always a treat to see the cardinal, whether in the red/white/green scene of a winter sighting in a fir tree, to hearing the wolf-whistle call during the warmer months. Thank you the thousandth time.

  • Ahhhh, lovely! Reminds me of the birds at my parents’ feeder in south Jersey. Nothing like a cardinal to herald Spring! Thank you for the song & the memory.

  • Judy Anfang

    One of my most favorite birds! As an early riser, I listen for them every morning, and they are my first sign of spring heading our way! ❤️

  • Marilyn Heuser

    We don’t see cardinals here in the Pacific Northwest. Thank you, Jim Brandenburg, for the sights snd sounds of the cardinal!

    I love cardinal birds. Thank for sharing. Stay healthy all.

  • Greta 7 months ago

    One of my favorite birds, but where I live we hardly ever have them as visitors. This winter I had a female cardinal but never saw the male. This gives me hope. Love their sound. Thank you.

    One of my favorite birds.

  • Mary Stellick

    For me, one of the earliest signs of spring is when we hear the cardinals start singing “birdy birdy birdy.”

  • Kevin Malmquist

    What kind of wood pecker is that? Asking for a friend in Grand Rapids Minnesota.

    • Sallie Mills

      Kevin Malmquist , I don’t see a woodpecker in the photo. That’s a beautiful Northern Cardinal!

    • Kevin Malmquist

      Sallie Mills oh. We don’t have them this far north. Yes I see that you are right. I’ll tell my friend. Thank you. Isn’t that Jim Brandenburg just the best. Thank you.

    • Sallie Mills

      Kevin Malmquist , I agree about Mr. Brandenburg. We moved up here from northern Illinois 19 years ago where we had cardinals in our yard all year long. I miss them so much. I discovered something this morning – if you tap on the photo, a video will come up and you’ll be able to hear the cardinal’s beautiful song.

    • Kevin Malmquist

      Sallie Mills thank you. I grew up in SW Minnesota and Mr Brandenburg photographed red foxes on Buffalo Ridge when I was a kid. Lots of great memories.

    • Sallie Mills

      Kevin Malmquist , his work is truly beautiful.

    • Kevin Malmquist

      Sallie Mills ask him. I’m sure it comes from the heart. A love of nature.
