Photo Share: Cardinal that reflects the season

A shot of a cardinal that reflects the season. Wishing you a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. - Photo by Rodney Campbell
According to allaboutbirds.org "The Northern Cardinal is perhaps responsible for getting more people to open up a field guide than any other bird. They’re a perfect combination of familiarity, conspicuousness, and style: a shade of red you can’t take your eyes off. Even the brown females sport a sharp crest and warm red accents. Cardinals don’t migrate and they don’t molt into a dull plumage, so they’re still breathtaking in winter’s snowy backyards."
