The Cardinalidae family Popup card

ardinals & Grosbeaks in the family Cardinalidae, are passerine birds found in North and South America. They are also known as cardinal-grosbeaks and cardinal-buntings. The South American cardinals in the genus Paroaria are placed in another family, the Thraupidae (previously placed in Emberizidae).

Because of that number, this family will be presented in two segments. Grosbeaks and allies has 69 species in the family. According to the IOC there are 53 species in this family including some Tanagers, Cardinals, Grossbeaks, Seedeaters and Buntings.

We have simulated the Bird popup card with Blue Grosbeak and Yellow Grosbeak. The same two single Cardinal birds and Couble cardinal birds.

Yellow Grosbeak are found mostly in Mexico, the Blue Grosbeak in the central regions of the United States to Central America and the Black-headed Grosbeak in the western regions of North America as opposed to the Rose-breasted Grosbeak in the eastern regions. The Pine Grosbeak prefers northern Canada and is known to visit central North America when food is scarce and lastly the Evening Grosbeak, who prefers the conifer regions of Canada and migrates as far as central North America

The blue grosbeak, Passerina caerulea, breeds from Panama north through Mexico, across the southern United States, and through the central United States north to North Dakota. Breeding populations in the United States and northern Mexico are long-distance migrants, wintering in areas south to Panama, and occasionally to South America. In Utah, the blue grosbeak breeds in the southern (especially the southeastern) portion of the state.



The blue grosbeak is typically found in habitats with scattered trees, riparian woodlands, scrub, or woodland edges. Breeding pairs often produce two broods per year. Females alone build the second nest of the season, but it is not known if males participate in building the first nest. Nests of twigs, bark, pieces of cloth, cellophane, and snake skins are constructed in low trees or bushes, usually just above ground, but often to fifteen feet above the ground. Usually four eggs are incubated for eleven or twelve days by the female, who is fed by the male. Young are fed mostly by the female for nine to thirteen days until they fledge. If the female then re-nests, the fledglings will be fed by the male. This bird eats mostly insects, but also eats other invertebrates, seeds, and fruits.


The Yellow Grosbeak is an easily identified bird; both sexes possess a relatively massive and all-dark bill. Males are principally black and yellow birds, with bold white markings over the largely black wings and tail, whilst females are less strikingly patterned, with dusky markings over the head and upperparts, but retain some, reduced, white wing markings. The male of the latter being more orange over the head and underparts. Like this species’ counterpart, the Golden-bellied Grosbeak (Pheucticus chrysogaster)

You can use Bird popup cards at any occation in the year to offer your loved. Blue birds have been considered a symbol of good luck and happiness since ancient times in many world cultures. Yellow grosbeak signifies healing, forgiveness, emotional and spiritual balance. The bird with eggs signifies new beginnings, hope, caring and love.
