This striking female cardinal has been living in my neighborhood since I first spotted her last spring. Her yellow coloring instead of the standard dull tan is what makes her most attractive and identifiable. It’s not a great shot of her, but you can see that she is not the normal color of a female. I’m glad she happened to show up during the count window so that I could send in this picture for all to enjoy. She makes me happy.
