Cardinals are easily recognized mainly by their plumage and their crested heads.  Their crests can be raised or lowered depending on their mood (similar to a dog's tail).

Male cardinals are recognized by their brilliant red plumage while the female (seen here) are a more subdued brownish color.

Unlike many migratory birds, cardinals are year round residents so we get to see in our backyards and wooded areas year round.
