Northern Cardinal

The Northern Cardinal, Cardinalis cardinalis, is one of our most colorful birds.  They are primarily seed eaters and are often found at bird feeders in the wintertime.  They are often seen in pairs.  The Northern Cardinal is the State bird of 7 States including North Carolina.  I like shooting the female because the feather detail shows up better than the bright red of the male.
