Red Gallery – Northern Cardinal

H.J. Ruiz - Avian101

Photo Gallery for Saturday



Have you ever seen this!


FYI:

This Northern Cardinal was caught and banded by IBBA ( Inland Bird Banding Association) members in central Texas!

The bird shows apparent bilateral gynandromorphism, a rare abnormality that causes it to have female plumage on one side of its body and male on the other. Such birds have both an ovary and a testis.
