There is a Northern Cardinal singing (first of the year, for me) this morning (0720h) in our backyard on John Street in the Avenues area of downtown Peterborough. (N.B. I heard a cardinal singing in late December of 2010 on Maple Crescent. Apparently they’ve been known to sing every month of the year. However, I’d never heard one in December before. D.M.)

Location: John Street, Peterborough
