Female Northern Cardinals

The Northern Cardinals have been plentiful in our backyard this winter.  I spotted these two cuties in our bushes one afternoon.  The female, though not as flashy as the bright red male, has lovely brown-gold plumage with warm red accents and a distinctive crest.

    • Thanks! We have had a group of cardinals wintering around our yard this year and it has been fun to watch their comings and goings. No two look exactly alike.
