This is the female Cardinal. We have not seen the male daddy Cardinal yet this year, so no pictures of him yet.
The male is much more noticeable as he is completely bright red.
The female only has a little color, but has a beautiful orange/red colored beak. Mom says the male is brighter colored because males always have to be the center of attention!
This cardinal was visiting our bird feeder and she is friends with the doves also. Mom buys special seed called Safflower, to attract the Cardinals.
