The Northern Cardinal

Cardinalis cardinalis(Linnaeus)



You most likely will find this bird nesting in low places like your trees or shrubs, usually not over six feet high.  Look closely in your flowerpots, hanging baskets, or shrubs on your patio because you may find them there too.  Cardinals are the only all red bird with a crest.  This bird likes to feed on small, black sunflower seeds at your feeder.
