Blue cardinal? newbie?
- Hello all,
I just joined and had a question for you. I saw what I thought was a blue
cardinal at my bird feeder yesterday morning. Several people suggested that
it was a Blue Grosbeak. I've never seen one before but my Audubon book says
the cardinal is 8-9 inches and the Grosbeak is 6-7.5 inches. This was with
cardinals and seemed to be the same size. Are there blue cardinals? Could
I have seen a Grosbeak the same size as a cardinal? Are Grosbeak common
here in the panhandle? I moved up here to Clarksville about 2 years ago
from around Crystal River.
