Introduction :- Red birds are beautiful and have a lot to share with us. The red bird species in the United States can be found all over the country, but some of them are more common than others. Red birds fall into two categories: native and non-native. Let’s look at some of these unique birds!
- Northern cardinal
The northern cardinal is the state bird of seven states, including Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina and Ohio. It is also the official bird of Chicago and its suburbs as well as being an unofficial symbol for Washington D.C.. The northern cardinal’s habitat includes deciduous forests but it can also be found in coniferous forests or open woodland where there is plenty of shrubbery available for nesting sites and food sources such as berries
2. Scarlet tanager
Scarlet tanagers are medium-sized birds that live in the eastern United States. They have a bright red head and body and black wings with white wing bars. The males have red on their throats and backs, while females are olive green or grayish brown with black spots on their wings.
Scarlet tanagers eat insects, berries and seeds like other birds do but they also catch small mammals such as squirrels to eat them too!
The summer tanager is a large songbird. It belongs to the cardinal family of birds, and this bird is found in the eastern and midwestern United States. It is a migratory species, meaning that it migrates south during winter months when food is scarce or when temperatures drop below freezing point.
The summer tanager has bright colors on its feathers and bills (the part of your face that you open when you talk). Its black throat feathers help protect against cold weather; if you see a bird wearing all black feathers like this one did, then it must be cold because it won’t be able to move around much!
Baltimore orioles are one of the most beautiful birds in North America. They are easily identified by their orange head and body, black wings, and white belly. The male oriole is a bit smaller than the female.
The western tanager, which is a species of tanager, is a resident breeding bird in the western half of North America. It is common summer resident throughout much of the West and its range extends from Alaska and Canada to central Mexico. In winter they migrate southward into Central America and northern South America as far south as Paraguay , where some populations occur.
The western tanager has a bright red breast with black streaks on each side (except for birds with white bellies). Its long tail feathers are yellowish green on both sides; in flight it appears blackish brown with silvery tips. The bill is orange-red with black tip or yellowish at base depending upon age or sex (with females having more yellow than males). The iris varies from dark brown through greenish-brown shades depending upon age/sex; young birds tend toward blue while older ones tend toward purple
- Rose-breasted grosbeak
Rose-breasted grosbeak is a medium-sized finch, which is common summer resident in eastern North America. It breeds in the northern part of its range and winters in the southern part of its range. Rose-breasted grosbeaks can be found in open habitats with thick vegetation like forests or brushy fields, but they are also seen around farms and agricultural areas.

Red crossbills are finch-like birds that are found in the northern hemisphere. These birds have a red head and black body with yellow beak. They can be found in forests or woodland areas, but they prefer to live near water because they need to drink often during their daylong journeys. The red crossbill eats seeds and grains from plants like apple trees or grasses (grass is a type of plant).
The red-headed woodpecker (Melanerpes erythrocephalus) is a medium-sized woodpecker. It’s the smallest of all North American woodpeckers and has a black head, neck and nape, with dark brown back plumage. The male’s upperparts are dark grayish brown with brighter gray wings and tail feathers. Its underparts are white or pale buffy gray; females have an entirely white belly with no mottling on it at all!
