Northern Cardinal at the Feeder

Northern Cardinal  

Northern Cardinal  

We are back in Jersey. After a gray week, it was sunny this AM. This male cardinal likes safflower for breakfast. We switch to safflower at this time of year because the cardinals and titmice like it, but grackles and starlings don't (so they say).

I love your bird pics and info. I was wondering though, there is a bird I would see on the Cook campus of Rutgers New Brunswick. It looked similar to a mocking bird with its soft brownish/taupe body but was longer with a white tips on it's tail and wings. Prominent tipping on the tail and wing tips made me notice it one day as it began the most interesting mating dance I'd ever seen. It was so sweet I have never forgotten it. Please let me know if you have an idea of what kind of birds they were?
