Curious Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis)

The northern cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) is a North American bird of family Cardinalidae. It is seen from southern Canada all the up to Belize and Guatemala. It is a territorial song bird of which mails would chase off other males. Commonly seen in inhabited areas such as backyards, parks, woodlots, and shrubby forest edges.

I met this curious male in the University of Florida campus today. It was watching me from about 10 feet.
