Critter Cam

Cardinals are so commonplace in Southeast Texas, we often forget the radiant beauty of these little birds.
The male cardinal is one of the most striking creatures in the world and they have obviously made a big impression on the local community. Lamar and Bridge City’s sports teams are named after them.
This photo was taken by seventh grader James Menard in a Kingdom Zoo photo contest.
