Female Northern Cardinal
Here is the winner of our Photo Contest, "Ontario in Focus", this picture was submitted by Dan Demczuk - With the window open a crack just after New Year, I heard the tell-tale chirp of a Cardinal. There was a bit of a winter storm brewing as I looked out that window. I managed to capture this gorgeous female on a maple branch as the wind picked up a notch. There may have been a male in the nearby pines.Hi Dan, I hope you don't mind, but I moved your picture over to our Photo Contest section - its a lovely picture!
