The Female Cardinal is a beautiful brown with red highlights wild bird. They are a larger sized wild bird and often sit hunched over with their long tail hanging straight down. Though not as bright and colorful as the male cardinal they are still a very colorful beautiful bird. We have numerous pairs of them visit our feeders here at our home in Southeast Missouri. You can not usually tell one bird from another but you usually see the male and female together.
