Songbirds: Northern Cardinal (male) .:SHD:.

The Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) or Redbird is a North American bird in the cardinal family. It is found in woodlands, gardens, shrublands, and swamps. (Wikipedia)

Included are 10 versions of the cardinal, all mod/copy and three prims only.

– Birds named with “sound on touch” play one of three short songs when somebody touches them.
– Birds named with “sound at daytime” play one of three short songs at random intervals (20-40 seconds) during daytime; at night they are silent.
– Birds named with “sound day and night” play one of three short songs at random intervals (20-40 seconds), whether it is day or night.
– Birds named with “silent” make no sounds.
– Birds named with “unscripted” make no sounds and do not blink.

Each bird comes in two versions, “crest up” and “crest down”.

All above birds, except for the ones marked “unscripted”, blink their eyes.

Note: The male and female cardinal sing the same songs.

The Down the Chimney Hunt starts today, December 6th! Pasting the official info here:

The best gridwide hunt in Second Life is back! Over 90 top-quality indie, bohemian, eclectic and alternative stores have teamed up to give you an awesome second holiday!

The hunt includes male and female clothiers, skin makers, shoe, jewelry and accessory stores, home goods stores, pose makers, hair creators and more.

The fun starts at the Kunstkammer Main Store in Emmelia. Each gift includes a link to the next store in the hunt, and the last store goes back to the start, (so you can start at any point in the hunt).

August’s Skipping Stones hunt was a smash hit, with many happy hunters and rave reviews. This second hunt promises to be even better, with more stores and brand-new gifts!

The hunt ends at midnight, Dec 20, so don’t miss out!

And here is .:SHD:.’s hunt prize: the wearable version (exclusive to the hunt) of the male Northern Cardinal!
