Cardinal in abstract expressive Sumac
Color Red Art Contest Contest Entry
From my perspective the Male Cardinal is a very ornamental, vibrant bird, sporting his shiny brilliant red feathers, ferocious looking black mask and black bib. Beak reminds of a Parrots beak and reminds of a tin snips that has power in the jaw. A opportunist and will forage on anything.
While observing a Male Cardinal in the wild for hours, his brilliant red feathers will not only attract a mate but will attract a predator and fly decoy the predator away from mates nest. He is a rather plump diminutive little bird and fools the predator to a imaginary nest far away from the females nest. He is a fast, crafty highly maneuverable little bird and will take the fight to a thicket where he has the advantage and with his strong tin snip beak, will snip of a predator's flight feather or two; He is a Sentinel and deserves all the ornamentation.
Thank You for viewing.
