The Northern Cardinal, or Cardinalis Cardinalis, is a bird commonly found in the middle to eastern portions of the U.S.A and Mexico. The males are easily distinguishable by their bright red color, which resemble the cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church, thus giving them the name "Cardinal".

Nice work, Erdbeereis!

I'm not familiar with this bird but all the different slopes and angles gives it a feathered look that is very good. :thumbup:

All the SNOT-work looks very advanced and difficult to make.

And I really like the use of crossbows as feet. :laugh:

The only thing wrong with it is the feet need to be bigger. Other wise :thumbup:

Nice work Erdy. You captured the shape really nicely. I especially like the 'neck' (?) the rounded bit immediately behind the black.

I actually think the crossbow feet are in good proportion to the cardinal.

Well done Erdy, its is an amazing work of art!

Thanks guys!

Funny, at first I thought the feet might be too big. :tongue: The actual feet are quite small actually.

Hello!

Nice combination of slopes to give this cute bird shape. Which you can only see only in the zoo here unfortunately. :classic:

Cheers,

An amazing job on this beautiful bird, mate! We have quite a number of these little guys raid our birdfeeders every summer, and enjoy seeing them come around. You got it pretty much exactly right, excellent work, and keep bricking! :thumbup:
