June Bird of the Month: Northern Cardinal

Many of you are probably familiar with the Northern Cardinal.  These birds are fairly common and easy to spot.  The male of the species is a bright red and the more recognizable form, while the female is a lighter brown.

Cardinals love sunflower seeds and males will even crack them open to give to the females while courting them.  How romantic!

The bright red and even the light tan have helped to inspire my work.  Here are some of my cardinal pieces.
