The leucistic cardinal
Normally, male cardinals are red with a black face and females are brown with red-tinged feathers. However, there is a range of color variations depending on how much pigment the bird’s cells produce. No matter what their coloration, pretty cardinals are songbirds and often travel in pairs.
A cardinal can raise and lower the crest on its head, depending on if it’s agitated or resting. Before making a nest, cardinal pairs travel around looking for the perfect spot, like a couple on House Hunters. She remarks about how the spot doesn’t have something or other, and he remarks about how it’s out of their price range.
