Northern cardinal 44

 

I was very surprised to learn today, experts have deduced through their banding efforts, that the Northern Cardinals that visit your feeder today may not be the same cardinals that visit your feeders in the following weeks.  Why do I feel that I have seen the same individuals throughout the summer, and beyond, at my feeders?  Some of them may vary but I am certain many of my cardinals return persistently.  Some of the cardinals I have seen at my feeders have very distinguishing marks so, although some may come and go, I am certain others return repeatedly over the long term.
