Name that bird?

I saw this very pretty bird in a tree in my yard the other day. It was really high up there so the 12x zoom of my camera came in handy. I got one of his mate as well, but it didn't turn out as in focus.

I am not a bird expert so name the bird in the comments to let everyone know.

That in #1 is a Male Cardinal and #2 is a female. Good shot!
