Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis)

With its standout style, the vivid red male Northern Cardinal was recognisable even before I consulted Merlin Bird ID. Even in winter, their captivating colour, conspicuous presence, and unchanging plumage make them a constant spectacle. Females, though brown, have an attractive crest and reddish highlights. Cardinals are non-migratory, and their melodious whistles herald the summer mornings.
