Northern Cardinal - Young male by avator Northern Cardinal - Young male by avator
My mother saw a "female" cardinal and said that usually they don't have orange feathers on the chest. Now I don't know if this is true or not but I took a picture just to verify.

Just checking google image for "cardinal female" and it's true most females seem to have a beige chest.
[link] <- for example.

So---- I came to the conclusion this was not a female, but a young male growing his red feathers! :) awww

Sadly had to use the digital zoom to get this picture, so it's all ugly and fuzzy, blah!

I love cardinals. Though the ones that are most common around here look a little different than the one in your pic. Great shot though.

Oui, MAIS !,
Est-tu vraiment prête pour faire le saut vers un DSLR avec au moins, un bon objectif ??
Il faut assumer ses passions et celle-ci (toi qui aime les oiseaux, ishhhh) est particulièrement dispendieuse !
