Most people can recognize these red-bodied birds quite easily. They are part of the finch family, and a further study of finches is recommended for those with this totem. Unlike many other birds, they are usually year-round residents.
They remind us that regardless of the time of day or year, we always have opportunity to renew our own vitality and recognize the importance of our own life roles.
The cardinal makes a loud and distinct whistle. This can be seen as a metaphorical reminder to listen closely and pay attention to what is occurring around you and in your life. In the case of the cardinal, the female joins in on the whistling, which is unusual among birds. This reflects that we should be listening to our inner voice more closely for
our own health and well-being. Since most female birds usually are quiet and camouflaged, a cardinal totem almost always reflects a need to assert your female creative energy and clairvoyance often.
