Cardinal

Since last fall we have had four Blue Jays.  I assume there are two pairs.  For the past week I have not seen any of them.  I am wondering where they have gone to.

In the fall we would sometimes see one lone male Cardinal. This winter we have not spied him at all.  Then yesterday I saw him and then later a small female cardinal.  I hope that they are a pair that have taken up residence.  Did he do a reconnaissance in the fall and after finding her convince her to take a look at the perfect place he found?

I hope they find the food to their liking and our trees to their preference.
