Beautiful male Northern Cardinal. by William Brennan

Beautiful male Northern Cardinal. by 

The Northern Cardinal,or Redbird, is found from southern 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, shrub lands, and swamps. It has a distinctive crest on the head and a mask on the face which is black in the male and gray in the female. It displays sexual dimorphism in its coloration; the male is a vibrant red, while the female is a dull red-brown shade. I captured this handsome fellow in my back yard in Rockaway, NJ.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)

    Bill, your photos of Birds are just fabulous, I love all the information about the birds as well, I was wondering if you once in a while could post your setting for these shots, so some of us learners could pick up some tips…Thanks Laura
