We live on Carlbert st. And see them all the time at our feeder. We even see them in pairs. Male and female. Beautiful birds!

That's nothing we have turkeys, wild ones in Goulais river.Not the people type, but birds.On second thought maybe a few people.

Cardinals are no longer "unusual" here in the Sault. They have been expanding northward for over a decade now, and while not as plentiful as they are in southern Ontario, there are a growing number of them establishing territory here in the north.

Bet there regretting their move north, after this weeks temps. They must be freezing their little bells off.

Not really cardinals are considered winter birds. They are newcomers to Canada but their range does include Northward over the years into Southern Ontario.

If you live near woodlands then put out a bird feeder with wild bird seed they may come.

The picture is a male.

Actually not so unusual! I have bird feeders in my East End front yard and see them often...not as often as the Blue Jay and Chickadee though. The one posted is a male, the female is not as colourful!!! Nevertheless, a beautiful bird!

The Cardinals have been in the area of Thessalon for some time.
And there has been Turkeys in the Goulais River area for a very long time..lol
