The story on the back reads:
The male cardinal is the only red bird in North America with a crest on top of his head, which rises when the bird senses danger. Cardinals are not migratory and stay in the same area year-round. They form winter flocks with up to 60-70 birds. They eat many pest insects and disperse seeds. Male cardinals are very territorial and will defend their territories vigorously, sometimes attacking their own reflections or other objects reflected in glass surfaces, mistaking them for another male. They are admired as attractive songbirds and biologists have observed that some cardinal songs are sung with accents.
