There is no mistaking the Cardinal. Famously brilliant, it appears in the backyards of Southeastern Canada, marking spring with a blaze of crimson red, a "what-cheer, cheer, cheer" and a "purty purty purty".

A super-breeder, the Cardinal raises 2-3 broods each season. The female tends the hatchlings for a few days then the male takes over while she gets on with a new nest and more babies! The Cardinal is protected here in Canada and what better Metalbird to hang out in your backyard. 

This Cardinal is:

  • 9.5 inches high by 4 inches wide (exl. the branch), approximately 8oz
  • Easy to send - our regular boxes are standard letter size, measuring 11"x 8"x 1/4"  
  • Made locally in a family-owned factory
  • Crafted from 1/8-inch Corten steel and designed to last a lifetime
  • Easy to install holding on a downwards angle simply tap the thickest end of the stake with a hammer or mallet until secure

    🇨🇦 Proudly Made in Canada

    Metalbird is a Sustainable Company

    Metalbird wants to give you a more detailed understanding of their stance on sustainability, and why it’s so important to them, as a business and as individuals.

    See, they don’t think it’s fair to create bird silhouettes inspired by real native birds, at the cost of their environment. They also believe that every business, big and small, has a responsibility towards the earth. So they work hard to ensure our business practices are top notch, environmentally, ethically and where sustainability is concerned.

    To start with, they make and ship locally. Their Corten®️ Steel has over 70% recycled content, and all scrap steel from their manufacturing process is recycled. On top of that, their packaging is made from recycled cardboard with biodegradable inks, designed to be recycled again and again.

    Bird Conservation

    Birds are universally beloved, and heavily symbolic to many. It’s a sad fact, however, that their environments have been decimated and many bird populations are rapidly dwindling. As a business that profits from the mere existence of birds, it’s only right that we work equally hard at protecting, nurturing and championing them.

    Metalbird does this by supporting bird conservations all over the world, raising money, releasing limited edition birds and donating the profits, raising awareness and sometimes even rolling up our own damn sleeves and planting some native trees.

    Here’s a slice of what M been up to in the last few years:

    • We help New Zealand's Forest & Bird do their urgent protection work.
    • We support the conservation work of Ducks Unlimited Canada.
    • We helped Birdlife Australia in the wake of the devastating bushfires.
    • We drew attention to threatened Godwit breeding grounds with a giant Metalbird in The Netherlands.
    • We’ve joined the fight to save Samoa’s national bird, the Manumea.
    • We’re contributing to the American Bird Conservancy’s fearless fight to save wild birds across the Americas.
    • We’re partnering with Birdlife International to support five critically endangered bird species.
