The Northern Cardinal can be found in Canada through the eastern United States from Maine to Texas and south through Mexico to northern Guatemala and Belize. It can also be found on the Big Island of Hawaii. It is found in woodlands, gardens, shrublands, and swamps. Taken at Mud Lake in Ottawa, Ont, Canada with my Canon 40D and 400 5.6 lens. Probably the best shot of a cardinal I’ve ever taken.
