Answer:1/4

Step-by-step explanation:The probability of it being a cardinal is the number of cardinals / the total number of possible birds the hawk could eat.

There are 3 + 5 + 4 = 12 total birds near the bird feeder.

There are 3 cardinals.

So the probability is 3/12 = 1/4 that the cardinal is eaten!
