It is beautiful. In the birds world, it is important that the females are a bit of an everyday look, because then they do not appear to the beasts as well as they are nestled in the nest. Males is enough when it is handsome.

A first view of a cardinal for me. Don't think we have them up here. I love her bright red beak and tasteful highlights in her wing.
