Northern Cardinal

This is a Cardinalis cardinalis in the family cardinalidea:

According to Wikipedia, the cardinal is interesting as a song bird because both male and female versions sing.  Typically it is only the males, who are trying desperately to mate.  Its Latin name gives it an air of importance, however, it is one of the more common birds around my house and certainly easy to spot.
