I've only evr seen one of these once-on a business trip. They are so bright, as your beautiful shot shows so well. The splash of red is so well isolated from the snow and twigs behind

Marilla from Turku, Finland

Superb! My first thought was that this can't be true... is the bird really so red? *****

17 Jan 2011 5:30pm

@Marilla: Some of them are very red and some a combination of gray and red.

Wayne from Chalfont, PA, United States

Cardinals are among my favorite birds and we occasionally get them at our feeders. We often get the male and female, but they are skittish and don't like me taking pictures. Some day!

17 Jan 2011 6:33pm

@Wayne: They are difficult to approach here too.

Marleen from Doesburg, Netherlands

The cardinal knows how to to present himself in this white setting....:-0

Beautiful! Next Year's Christmas card? We don't have many cardinals here in AZ. But they are the Indiana State Bird, where I'm from.
