While not as bright red as northern cardinals, the Arizona cardinal is a delightful bird to encounter on an evening walk. This one might be a juvenile, considering its feathery tuft and plump body.
A website from Cornell University identifies this bird as a Pyrrhuloxia
, a related species to the northern cardinal. Since I'm an amateur birdwatcher, I will still call it an Arizona cardinal.
