Northern Cardinals

This is my Northern Cardinal page. As I photograph them in my back yard or other places in Florida, I will share them here.

Per Wikipedia, “The common name, as well as the scientific name, of the northern cardinal refers to the cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church, who wear distinctive red robes and caps. The term “northern” in the common name refers to its range, as it is the northernmost cardinal species.”

There are no Cardinals in Boise, Idaho where I spent the last three and a half years. I missed them very much.

The Cardinal have a special place in my heart as they were my mother’s favorite bird. I rarely saw them in our Pembroke Pines, Florida neighborhood, but in Placid Lakes, Florida we seem to have at least one couple residing in the trees around our home. So thrilled about that!
