Scarlet the Cardinal, is small and orange, with a sweet sounding melodic melody to his song. He’s a very sensitive juvenile that hasn’t turned his deep scarlet color yet. Scarlet looks lonely sitting on a branch calling out for a friend or a mate? Will this noble looking animal find what he’s waiting for? I hope so!
Scarlet just flew off, I’m sure he’s hungry and foraging on the bare branches for berries that he loves to eat. Yum, yum, yummy, says Scarlet in his pleasant musical chirp! What are Scarlet’s favorite foods? How often does he need to eat? Is it as often as you and me? What do you think?
Who are Scarlet’s friends? Well I know his forest friends! The White Tailed buck or doe, the Canada Goose, Herman the Grounhog, the wee small Kits, and even the pincer aggressive Earwig, are all Scarlet’s forest friends. What adventures will they all have? Will they play separately or together? All forest friends will keep track of each other and will watch for their friends and neighbors! Any human would do that too! Guess what, humans are animals too. We walk like a bear and climb trees like them too! We are related, that’s why!
