Zoe Buccella of Barnesville recently received a superior rating at State Science Day for her zoological study, "Meteorological Conditions: Do They Affect Cardinal Feeding Behavior?" The results of her study suggest cardinal feeding behavior increases when barometric pressure is low. Low barometric pressure is often an indicator of forthcoming inclement weather. The study also suggests that cardinal feeding increases during low temperatures and during snowfall, although low barometric pressure was the most prominent factor in driving the birds to feed.
