This female Northern Cardinal peeks in our window when the feeders are empty which leads me to believe birds are smart. We call her Carly, and once the feeders are filled, she sends out calls, is joined by her mate Marley and other Northern Cardinals. This behavior is interesting in the sense she is persistent, will peek and peck at the window until the seed is delivered to the feeders. I captured this photo at my home in Alabama. A very clever bird indeed.
