Male Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
Last time, I posted a photo of a female Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis). Here is her mate, posing for me in the morning sunlight.
Because of the angle of the cardinal's crest in this shot, I'm giving this photo the title 'Cardinal Conehead'. It reminded me of the Saturday Night Live skits and the film about the aliens with the cone-shaped heads!
In case you missed it, here is another photo of the same bird.
