This isn’t close to the best photograph I have of a northern cardinal but in this photograph I picked up a little DeNiro attitude from Taxi Driver. He appears to be giving me a very stern look when actually he didn’t even know I was there. This photograph was taken at the bird blind in Palo Duro Canyon at the wildlife viewing blind. Take your kids with you to the blind, it is a great place to see many species and the walls of the blind are lined with beautiful labeled pictures of the species you are likely to see. Cardinals are a beautiful bird and are common in the canyon and even in towns in the panhandle (at least in places).
