Couldn't resist posting this photo of a MALE NORTHERN CARDINAL today on SUPERBOWL SUNDAY with the Cardinals playing in the game against the Steelers..;)
"The male cardinal fiercely defends its breeding territory from other males. When a male sees its reflection in glass surfaces, it frequently will spend hours fighting the imaginary intruder.
Brighter red males hold territories with denser vegetation, feed at higher rates, and have greater reproductive success than duller males."
