Cardinals and hornworms

Post  llama momma on 7/21/2016, 1:18 pm

I've been going after hornworms everyday.  Today saw the best sight of a northern cardinal feeding on a large hornworm.  Upon further reading I found out 1/3 of a cardinals diet will be insects, especially during nesting to feed the young.  I thought they were strictly seed eaters.  Always enjoyed these birds at the seed feeder and now  enjoy having them around even more.

Your best sight, a northern cardinal, is prettier than mine, mockingbirds. But mine can sing a lot of different songs. Wink I haven't seen a horn worm this year but maybe it is still too early??

Nice, LM!  I didn't know that Cardinals ate hornworms!  I do know that goldfinches are about the only seed-only eating bird around here.  And I think they even catch bugs for their babies...

True, Sanderson, yours know more songs!  LOL!
