Product Description

West Virginia designated the northern cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) as official state bird in 1949. One of America's favorite backyard birds, cardinals are distinctive in appearance and song - known for their "cheer cheer cheer," "whit-chew whit-chew" and "purty purty purty" whistles. Male cardinals are a brilliant scarlet red, females a buffy brown with reddish wings - both have a jet -black mask, pronounced crest, and heavy bill. The cardinal sings nearly year-round, and the male aggressively defends his 4-acre territory (male cardinals have been seen attacking small red objects mistaken as other males).

The rhododendron was adopted as the official state flower of West Virginia in 1903 (with the recommendation of the Governor and a vote by the public and school pupils).

The approximate design size using 18 count fabric is 6.94" x 10".  Stitch count is 125 x 180.
