Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday - Female Northern Cardinal

This cute little bird visits our garden regularly.  She's not as brightly colored as the red male, but still as pretty in my humble opinion.  You can find out all about her here.


I am linking with Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday which you can find here.   Thank you for hosting Stewart, this is a very enjoyable meme and one I enjoy participating in.

Wonderful photo. Love your header photo ! That bird looks like a cross breed of a Cardinal by the beak and a Sparrow by the back feathers lol ! Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

While not as colorful as her male counterpart, the female cardinal is very pretty in her own quiet way.

She is stunning. And Arija is right - the chuch would be improved if they had lady cardinals too.

Gunilla Bäck said...

She's beautiful even if she isn't as colourful as the male.

Ken Schneider said...

If the male were not such a bright red we would not find fault in this beautiful bird.

Debbie said...

Beauty, is in the eye of the beholder, I think she is lovely!!

Larry said...

A lovely shot of the female Northern Cardinal Denise. I also think that she is actually more beautiful than the male!

Kay said...

Ahhhh... I believe we have a cardinal that looks very much like that bird here in Hawaii. So adorable.

Wonderful image!
Our backyard couple have been busy building a nest.
The male will take a seed to the nearby female and feed it to her - a good sign we'll soon have young Cardinals!
