Northern Cardinal – Baja Sur, MX
Okay, this should snap you out of your winter blues. Here is a fiery red northern cardinal from Mexico. Yup, that’s right, I said Mexico. These little guys range from Canada to Central America, but they don’t migrate so you can see them year round throughout their range. If you live in the Midwest or Northeast just put up a birdfeeder in your backyard and fill it with sunflower seeds and you are bound to get a cardinal before you know it. Don’t forget to set up your camera beforehand so you can snap a great shot. One more tip… Rather than photograph the bird on a feeder, set up a stable perch (branch or twig) near the feeder. When birds are waiting their turn they will likely sit here and you can get a very natural looking shot. So have at it and send in your northern cardinal photographs. We would love to see them.
