BIRD OF THE WEEK — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

BIRD OF THE WEEK:

NORTHERN CARDINAL: 

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Cardinalis cardinalis
POPULATION: 120 million
TREND: Increasing
HABITAT: Forest edges, parks, and yards across much of North America and parts of Central America

Few birds are so familiar and yet so well-loved as the Northern Cardinal. The males are unmistakable, with their striking red feathers and black mask. Even female cardinals stand out, with red accents on brown; unlike many female birds, they also sing. Cardinals don’t migrate, so they brighten landscapes wherever they reside.
