The Northern cardinal, misko-bineshiinh in Objiibwe (Anishinaabemowin), is one of the most recognizable song birds due to the male’s vibrant red plumage and black mask around its red bill. The brighter the red, the more successful the male is. His fiery colour brings him greater reproductive success, ranges with better food supplies and he is able to feed more frequently.
Cardinals have special meaning in First Nation Cultures. They are often described as messengers from the spirit world bringing good luck or support in time of need. They are also seen as symbols of monogamy and harmony since they mate for life, sing duets with their partners and can be seen twelve months of the year. Spotting a bright red cardinal against the white winter landscape is thought of as a blessing and harbinger of good luck.
