The Cardinals’ diet is varied but they eat mostly seeds, insects, and berries. Cardinals are permanent residents in almost all of the eastern United States and in southern Arizona. Here in Minnesota, their range has been slowly expanding to the north. They are regularly seen in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, only about 15 miles from our home. We are hoping that they will soon find us and we will be able to count them among our yard birds.
