Re: [cayugabirds-l] Cardinals and cherry blossoms

I came across 3 House Finch feeding on blossoms at the start of Towpath Rd. 
yesterday. At one point the Male was feeding blossoms to one of the females.

Folks - a question.
Today I watched a male Cardinal in a cherry tree. He was picking at the 
blossoms, putting them in his mouth, then quickly discarding them. He was 
grabbing them from the stem end and not the blossom end.  He was doing it for 
quite some time. The path beneath the trees was covered with discarded blossoms.
Any idea(s)?
Thanks.

Long ago I sucked the sweet nectar from periwinkle flowers- from the stem side.
Guess I will try it with cherry blossoms tomorrow.
