Cardinal Behavior

Males are the most aggressive of the two sexes. They are very territorial and will defend their territory against other males. Cardinals are not migratory birds and they gather in groups in the winter. Most of the cardinals live within a mile of the place were they were born. When danger is sensed, cardinals will raise their crest on the top of the head. Cardinals eat seeds, fruits, buds, and insects.
