Cardinals are named after their plumage - which is thought to resemble a Catholic Cardinal's red vestments! The Cardinal became the state bird of Illinois in 1929 and was chosen by children. Cute!
This Cardinal - Illinois State Bird Ornament is made from Black Cherry wood grown and milled in the USA! The ornament is finished with a non-toxic food-safe oil to enhance and protect the natural beauty of the wood.
Ornament comes tied with a hanging ribbon and bow (also made in the USA).
