Have you Heard This New Conversation in 2021?
With Daylight increasing, Northern Cardinals have ramped up their calls to one another and sing all day long. At this time of year, the females sing too. (Most of the year males sing when trying to find a mate and staking his territory.) When you step outside in the Chicago area, see if you can hear any of these Cardinal sounds like a metallic "chip" or the song that sounds like the Cardinal is painting the sky with quick, high pitched strokes. A vocal paintbrush.
