Northern Cardinal

Northern cardinals were the only species found in every mainland block. Cardinals were also found on East Horn Island. Most blocks had several mating pairs.

In most blocks, probable status could be achieved by recording seven calling males or by noting a pair. As the high number of confirmations indicate, the nests are often easy to locate and the fledglings are even easier to find.
