Northern Cardinal (Male)

Cardinalis cardinalis


This one looks a little fat and short, but I think that's a seasonal thing. These birds can be found all over the city of Toronto, and are often seen in breeding pairs. They are far more noticeable in the winter when the trees are bare as the red really stands out.


He was spotted hanging around some trees that obscure a drainage ditch. The Don Valley is only one block to the West.


This is an old photograph that I took two months after getting my first dslr. Long before I understood RAW or the power of Adobe.
