During the summer months, it shows preference for seeds that are easily husked, but is less selective during winter, when food is scarce. Northern cardinals will also consume insects and feed their young almost exclusively on insects Picture taken in Cooper Marsh, on December 14, 2014 in Ontario, Canada

It is believed that Northern Cardinals mate for life, but during winter, the male does not allow his mate to feed with him. With the return of spring we see the practice of mate-feeding when the male brings shucked sunflower seeds and other choice tidbits to the female and places them in her open mouth.

The breeding male (drake) has a mask of  green feathers around its eyes and a cream colored cap running from the crown of its head to its bill. This white patch gives the wigeon its other common name, baldpate. Their belly is also white.

Wigeon also commonly feed on dry land, eating waste grain in harvested fields and grazing on pasture grasses, winter wheat, clover, and lettuce. Having a largely vegetarian diet, most wigeon migrate in the fall well before northern marshes begin to freeze.
