Northern cardinal

Cardinalis cardinalis


This male cardinal, whom I named Clancy, was banded in my yard in early May for a tracking project for the Smithsonian Institute. Unfortunately, I haven't seen him in June and hope that he didn't fall prey to a Cooper's hawk who has been hanging around a lot and who has done some successful hunting.

Thanks, Desmond - I haven't seen him for months. I explained in the description that he was banded in my yard.

And a green one too, it must have been captured & tagged.

Neat spotting, I noticed that the bird has a red & a silver band, on it's leg

Thanks, Nishant! I haven't seen him lately and hope to see him again soon so I can report it to the tracking project.
