About the Cardinal:
The brilliantly colored Northern Cardinal is the record holder as a state bird. In the US, the cardinal is the state bird of seven US states.

The cardinal is commonly seen in winter at backyard, snow-covered bird feeders throughout the Northeast.

Description:
The cardinal is a medium-sized songbird with a large crest on the head. They have a heavy, conical red-orange bill and the face is surrounded by black.

The male is a brilliant red. While the female is tannish with a red tail and wings. Both the male and female have a bright red-orange beak.

Size:
8 to 9 inches in length
Wingspan: 10 to 12 inches
Weight: 1.5 to 1.7 ounces

Upon arrival at my feeders, both male and female cardinals give a clear "chip" "chip" "chip" sound. All the while their tails go up and down with each "chip". I always know when they've arrived. Most songbirds have more than one song. The cardinal is no exception. They also sing a series of clear whistles, the first down-slurred and ending in a slow trill. "Cheer, cheer, cheer, what, what, what, what."

The male cardinal is fiercely territorial. There are three males in the territory of my feeders. I love to watch them keep intruders away from "their" feeders.

Cardinals are listed as a species of concern in California and may disappear there entirely due to loss of habitat.
