Great new bird for me, spotted last week at Falcon State Park along the Rio Grande in south Texas.

    Looks like a parrot relative?

  • Hi Al, no it is a member of the cardinal family.

    Beautiful, beautiful shot. If he were a human he looks like he could be a doctor – intelligent, perched and ready.

  • Thanks so much for your very kind comment.

    looks alot like the female red bird….i could be mistaken,have been known to be in the past.lovely shot~Bill

  • It is a female Pyrrhuloxia, found along the TexMex border.- Cardinals look similar but the female cardinal does not have the gray with rose chest high lites nor the rosy crest. I was birding with a nationally recognized expert so there is no doubt about the species ID. Thanks for looking.
