A small seed-eating migratory bird from the Cardinalidae family. The male is a vibrant blue in the summer and a brown color during the winter, while the female is brown year around.
It migrates from Southern Canada to Northern Florida during the breeding season and from S. Flordia to Northern S. America during the winter.
Often migrates at night using the stars to navigate.
This male I found on our bird feeders in Kenosha Wisconsin, USA. Used a Canon Rebel XTI.
