Bird - Windy Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) - Watercolor

Regular price $12.50

Blowing in the wind, the cardinal is the perfect combination of familiarity, conspicuousness, and style.  A shade of red you cannot take your eyes off of in the landscape.  In the early morning he has a sweet whistle.  In the winter he retains his color as he does not molt. He stays at home with us too as he does not migrate. Giclee print sizes not shown here can be made to order.
