A wide variety of predators are know to prey on Northern Cardinals.  Coopers Hawks, Loggerhead Shrikes, Northern Shrikes, Long-eared Owls and Eastern Screech Owls are birds that have all been known to feed on these cardinals.  Some say even the Eastern Gray Squirrel will prey on a Northern Cardinal.  Additionally Fox Squirrels, Eastern Chipmunks, Blue Jays, Coluber Constrictors, and Milk Snakes may feed on the chicks or eggs of the Northern Cardinal.
