Cardinal envy...

It's a lot like penis envy. Probably more than you can imagine. There are a pair of cardinals flying around here...I've been eyeing them up since summer. I have *3* friggin' birdfeeders in my yard but yet they continually go to feed at my neighbor's feeder! Granted, he has a bush at the corner of his house and that offers some shelter from predators...but I have nice feeders...and I buy "cardinal mix" bird seed for crying out loud! And still the silly birds will do nothing but fly into my yard briefly and hop on the ground. ARRGH!

Read the first paragraph about cardinals:

They are ground-feeders.

I have this feeder http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=235778-1128-L567&lpage=none and there is PLENTY of room for them to land and feed on a flat surface (no perches!)...my feeder is bigger than my neighbor's...and I see them over at his constantly during the day. Damnit. I need to take a peek at what he's feeding them, I guess.

We have loads of cardinals and I only buy sunflower seeds. They love them.
