Delicate bird! It looks like a female for sure! Many thanks Sandy!
Oh wow - she is just so beautiful. I had no idea female cardinals look like this - we don't have them in England, at least I've never seen one here.
This may be a juvenile (young of the year) male. They look much like the females, but have a more prominent crest, and are a little less greenish. Of course, coloration does vary around the country.
Beautiful picture of this female. Thank you.
Thank you Hanne and Celeste.
Such a beautiful bird.:)
Oh, she's SO fine!! Thanks so very much Sandy!!
Thank you david.
Again, a beautiful photo, CM. Our females are not as showy - even less red than this, and without such a big crest - I wonder if it is a different species or just local variation? Anyway, always a joy in the snow. Thanks!
Thank you loveydear and Happy Holidays to you!Thank you sladjana, laura, PLG and morris!

Pretty, great shot, I'm wishing you Happy Holidays!
Thank you punkie and Ank.
Even the female is very beautiful. Very nice birds Sandy, thanks
Love seeing them-especailly in the winter against the snow. Great pair you posted, chickie!
Thank you jcarroll, Graciela, A3ana and mhughes.
ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Both female and male are so very pretty! Love it, love it! Your so talented with a camera chickie.
Very beautiful (Male & Female)
They are so beautiful!! thanks chickie
Another beautiful photo, chickie!
I love them in the Winter. Thank you goingsilver.
I probably should have realised that the females would not be as vibrantly coloured as the males, but I think this is the first time I have seen a photo of one. She is still a gorgeous looking bird! Shame they are not seen here in the UK!
