CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis)
This is a male.
Cardinals eat mostly seeds and fruit. At my place favorites include Wings Sumac, Wax Myrtle and the seeds of Bidens Alba (Spanish Needles). They do supplment diet with insects and feed mostly insects to nestlings.
This guy was looking at my empty planter. Perhaps he is planting a seed?
