Female Cardinal

The female cardinals are not as brightly colored or as flashy as the males, but who can't appreciate their muted colors?

The female Northern Cardinal sings, often from the nest. The song may give the male information about when to bring food to the nest. A mated pair shares song phrases, but the female may sing a longer and slightly more complex song than the male. (Source: All About Birds)
