  1. Found this pretty bird in the circle on SF bay area beach. Flipping thru my bird book, I couldn't find anything similar to her. Any idea? Sorry for the poor image. Thanks.

    Very unusual...Most of our female Cardinals are brownish. With no red....hummmm

    What Dave said is correct. I googled the bird and I found this lovely photo,

  6. Most cardinals show up in pair. I hope this one was the right partner of the red-crested cardinal, not the one standing on the rock and ogling. :smile:
