Adopt a Northern Cardinal

Northern cardinals are one of the most recognized birds in the United States. They live year-round in the eastern half of the continental United States. Besides being the state bird of seven states, the northern cardinal is a common sight at bird feeders, parks and suburban backyards. They can also be found in woodlands and forest edges. Both male and female northern cardinals sing. Male northern cardinals will sing to defend and mark their territory, while females sing to communicate to the male from their nest. Male northern cardinals are bright red with a red-orange bill and have a noticeable black mark on their face that surrounds the eyes, bill and neck. They are one of the few non-migrating birds to keep their showy, bright feathers during the non-breeding season. Help NWF in its efforts to protect and recover the wild places that sustain wildlife.
