Imagine waking up every morning to the melodies of birds. Not just any birds, but special red ones! Their appearance will truly leave you breathless! 

My favorite part of the day is sitting on my terrace, drinking my coffee, and enjoying their performance. Their acrobatics while flying around my yard always leave me speechless.

I know you can’t wait to meet your new favorite guests. If you want it to happen sooner, prepare a bird feeder, seeds, and a camera to snap some photos of these red beauties!

These red birds are one of my favorites. I was amazed when I first saw them flying over my garden. Vermilion Flycatchers have a fiery color and black markings around their eyes that look like a mask! Pretty cool, right?

They love to feed on different insects. With their help, you will get rid of annoying flies. You won’t have to spend money on expensive products to drive insects away from your garden anymore.

Males have a really cute way of flirting. When Vermilion Flycatchers want to impress females, they bring a nice gift. How adorable! Usually, it’s a butterfly or some other insect that they catch. I must say, these birds are very thoughtful!

#2 The Common Redpoll Might Stay Through Winter

These birds aren’t completely red, but they have a small patch on their foreheads. That makes them even cuter, and easy to recognize.

You’ll need to fill the bird feeder with plenty of seeds because they are real foodies! These treats will attract them, which means more visits to your garden. 

Common Redpolls are known for their ability to live through freezing cold conditions. They can stand temperatures as low as -65°F. Isn’t that fascinating?

#3 Northern Cardinals Are Good Friends And Loyal To Each Other

Look at these cute little red fluffy birdies, always showing off their beautiful feathers. What makes them even cuter is they always look kind of angry.

Besides seeds, you can also treat these birds with dogwood berries. Trust me, they’ll be obsessed with this delicious treat!

During their mating season, they show their true loyalty! Male cardinals are known for defending their territory. 

Don’t be surprised if you see them pecking angrily at their own reflection in windows. Stay away from that because, trust me, you don’t want to get involved in that argument!

They are so sweet when they are in love, and you will often see a male and female cardinal feeding together. Now that’s a photo-worthy moment!

Their favorite place to hang out is oak trees. If you have oak trees near your yard, you will see them more often than you think!

They most enjoy happily flying around the garden then stopping in trees, and that’s where the fun begins. That means it’s time for their favorite activity, which is singing. All that’s left for you is to enjoy their sweet melodies.

#5 House Finches Enjoy Imitating Other Birds

The sweetest scene you can see is a house finch chilling on a branch and nibbling on seeds. Their favorite thing is teasing other birds and imitating them.

They are mostly gray with red patches, not as vibrant as other birds. That doesn’t make them any less special, though!

House finches are a good example that even small birds can bring a lot of joy to a garden. So, make sure to provide them with plenty of seeds so you can enjoy their latest hits.

Have you seen how many cute red birds there are? I used to think they were all the same, but when I took photos of them I noticed that each birdie is special in its own way.

Now quickly fill that feeder so you can provide a delicious treat for the birds, and who knows, maybe you’ll be able to tame them. Wouldn’t it be great to have a little bird empire in your yard?
