The female cardinal is a more subtle color than the male with buff-brown upperparts, a dark face and wings and tail washed with red. If you spot a male cardinal, the female is not far away as cardinals mate for life.
This realistic carving (shown on the right in the photo) is beautifully painted and measures 7.5 inches from beak to tail, is 4 inches high with an overall height of 8 inches. All of our life-sized birds are carved from basswood (a very carveable wood that does not split and takes paint well), are hand-feathered and hand-painted with acryllics. They have glass eyes and metal feet.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed!
Colors on this bird are true to nature. I actually have the male and female pair of these carved birds and they look great together.Michelle freshour
