The red cardinal is a bird with bright plumage and a symbol of the seven states of the United States.
The red or Virginia cardinal is a songbird that belongs to the family Cardinalidae. It has red-purple plumage.
The red Cardinal is a favorite of many Americans. No wonder they chose it as their bird symbol in seven states at once! Virginia, West Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and North Carolina. But the cardinal is adored not only by Americans but also by Canadians.
The male is especially beautiful – he is all crimson-red, very bright, with original black “glasses” around the eyes and near the strong beak. It is from her that the main character Red from the cartoon and the game of the same name Angry Birds is drawn.
The bird belongs to the order of passerines and therefore inherited from them many traits of character and behavior.
This name was given to the bird due to the bright red plumage of the males and a specific black mask along the beak and neck. The color of the females is dominated by calmer colors-gray, light brown.
Cardinals are extremely intelligent, they have an excellent memory. But most importantly, the handsome cardinals are excellent family men. They are distinguished by their loyalty to the lady of the heart and take care of their offspring. Unlike many birds, cardinals form pairs for life, not just for the breeding season.

– Painting stained glass with a pattern. Will help you figure out the color combination. Any glass can be used. I work with SPECTRUM and Wissmach glasses. And in some patterns, I give the layout according to the recommended glasses.
I have already taken care of the scale and here are the optimal ones (in my opinion :)) After purchasing, download the PDF file, print it on an A4 sheet, and glue it with labels. And you will get a full-size stained glass window, which is already there, with which you can work immediately. This is probably the best way to get a physical pattern from an electronic file.
SVG vector file
If you need a different size for the pattern, it’s easy to do because I put it in the SVG file.
Easily change the picture’s proportions, the thickness and color of the lines with one movement of the mouse, scale to the desired size and perform all these operations without losing the quality of the picture.
Any vector graphics program is suitable for working with SVG. Freeware is the Inkscape graphic editor.
