Abstract

Six subspecies of the Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) are currently recognized as inhabiting the Caribbean slope of Mexico from Texas to Isla Cozumel. The characters and distributions of these races are reviewed and corrected. An additional subspecies, best characterized by the pallor of females, is described from the coastal scrub of the northern edge of the Yucatán Peninsula.
