Western Desert Cardinal by DeeOtter Western Desert Cardinal by DeeOtter
This is the closest thing I'll see to a cardinal in the west, until I manage a trip out east again. There are a lot of really neat birds in the desert, including another cardinal like bird that is a shiny blue color (Phainopepla)

Pyrrhuloxia
Cardinalis sinuatus
Spring Canyon State Park, NM

They're adorable. Was hoping to see a few more but just managed to see this one. It fled a moment after the picture was taken (I managed 2 frames)
