Indiana State Bird and Indiana State Tree

Here a cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) finds its Friday morning breakfast at the tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) at Purdue Horticulture Gardens. The seed cones of the tulip tree provide food for seed-eating birds like the cardinal even this late in the winter. Pictures taken February 19. 2010.
