Maury Lewis writes:
I noticed this activity at my platform feeder the other day where the Goldfinches looked like they were kissing.

I do know and have seen male Cardinal's feeding the female Cardinal during mating season, but I don't know if there are other birds that do this.Maybe someone out there could tell us. -Maury Lewis
Thanks, Maury Lewis. Maybe someone will submit a photo of male Cardinals feeding females. Wouldn't that be nice for Valentine's Day and/or the 2011 GBBC? -CM
