Redbird

Redbird Variant names:
St Louis Cardinal, Arizona Cardinal, Stanford Cardinal, Vatican Cardinal

Scientific name:
Pontificum candidatae

Distinguishing characteristics:
Red feathers; a superior attitude; jealous behavior.

Song:
I'm pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty; lookat-MEE, lookat-MEEEE

Fun facts:

  • Opie shoots a Redbird in an early episode of The Andy Griffith show. When Sheriff Taylor discovers the dead bird behind the house, Opie claims that Barney shot it. Aunt Bea corroborates Opie's story and threatens to whup Barney's butt if he doesn't take the fall. Andy never allows Barney to carry a loaded pistol again, and Aunt Bea adds the Redbird to the stew she is preparing for dinner.

  • Some Redbirds feature prominent crests. Others prefer hats, often baseball-style caps worn backwards.
