With a name that is as difficult to pronounce as it is to spell, the Pyrrhuloxia is often mistaken for a female Northern Cardinal. Found in brushy desert habitat of the Southwest, it can be differentiated from a Cardinal by its stubby yellowish bill and comical pointed crest.

    Great bird and I love that the Northern cardinal is singing in the background of the photo of the Pyrrhuloxia…Great job. Enjoy and find many more birds. Someday i hope to do a BIG YEAR. Many blessings on your journey. Sister Marty
