Every morning I awake to the sound of Northern Cardinals outside my bedroom window at my Tennessee home. Although they are a little shy, they are quite vocal! In studying them, I learned something wonderful. The male Northern Cardinal actually feeds the female during courtship! I just love that. Come to think of it, when my husband was courting me, he made me a very special meal on one of our early dates. They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Well, the same thing can be said of women!
