Same size as a Cardinal. Length: 8.3 in (21 cm)

Only found in the Southwest deserts, Pyrrhuloxias are gray or gray-brown birds with flashes of red. Males are gray with a red face and crest, a red stripe running down the breast, and a reddish tail. Females are buffy gray, with less red than males. Both sexes have yellowish bills and reddish highlights in the wings. They are closely related to Northern Cardinals, but they are gray and red, with a longer, elegant crest and a stubby, parrotlike yellow bill.
