Here’s a rather soft and impressiony picture of a male cardinal on February 2, 2009, along Bull Creek in my northwestern part of Austin.
As is often the case with birds, the male is much more colorful than the female, as you can confirm in a photograph from 2013.
I’m away from home. You’re welcome to leave comments, but please understand if I’m slow in responding.
