I've been blogging a lot for the last couple of days, so this will be a short one.
Today is ABC Wednesday-P, so I will be showing you the Pyrrhuloxia.
A cardinal-like finch native to the southwest United States and northern Mexico, we've seen these guys around many parts of New Mexico. They really do resemble a cardinal, but their color is predominantly grey with bright pink to red markings. While the female is nowhere near as colorful as the male, they still have the distinctive comb.
Even though we see them frequently, we still get excited every time we spot a new one.
