Hi, I am just learning about N.American birds by watching the Cornell Feeder Cam, but I can't find this one in my field guide - can you tell me what it is please? The orange bird was feeding the - I guess - juvenile.
Thanks very much, Debbie.

I think there is a little color fidelity issue with the picture; the orange in the front and vegetation in the back all look a bit yellowish. The male Cardinal looks a bit too orange from the same problem.

Not a juvenile but an adult female. It is called courtship feeding, during breeding season Mr. Cardinal gives food items to Mrs. Cardinal!
