One of the most desirable backyard birds in North America, the Northern Cardinal is instantly recognizable. Northern cardinals are dimorphic, with male birds a brilliant red color all over that may be slightly duller on the wings. Males also have a black narrow facial mask around the eyes, bill and chin. Females are a buff golden tan with a red tinge to the wings and tail, and their facial mask is smaller and less distinct. Both genders have a prominent head crest.  

The oil painting above features a fledgling cardinal, painted in North Carolina in early spring.
