Fine art illustration of a Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Northern Cardinal illustration appeared in Stackpole Books for Laura Erickson’s 101 Ways to Help Birds . It was created in 2004 and the digital tinting added in 2007. These striking birds were a large part of my early fascination with animals. I remember seeing them come into the birdfeeder in the brutal cold of a Minnesota winter, the deep red standing out boldly against the snow.
