Birds of the Sanctuary: Northern Cardinal

There's no mistaking this brilliant, flashy bird, which can be found throughout much of North America. I'll see perhaps a half-dozen pairs from time to time. Cardinals are ground feeders and are attracted to sunflower and safflower seeds.

With her dull brownish plumage, the female can be harder to spot, but her beak is a giveaway.
