Northern Cardinal

Cardinalis cardinalis


This is only the second Northern Cardinal that I've seen on my farm... (we live in a really rural area).

The colder it gets the brighter these get. I saw one today that was nearly glowing and I don't know if you've noticed or not but the brighter one is, the more respected it is by the other male cardinals.
