Cardinal Grabbing A Quick Snack

This pretty female Northern Cardinal was resting on a tree and I think she noticed an insect because she just went all upside down and grabbed whatever it was without a hitch in her get-along. Birds are very agile at times!
Northern Cardinals (Cardinalis cardinalis) are active song birds that sing a variety of melodies. They are actually omnivores, eating insects, grain, fruit and sap. Fun fact: They can live up to around 15 years in the wild.
