Thread subject: This Cardinal Is Both Male And Female

Celeste 01/08/15 09:08 pm Wow Terryo....!!!! How interesting! I love learning as much as I can about cardinals as I have a dedicated group of cardinals for several years at my feeder. One cardinal in particular I recognize as he lost all his feathers a few years ago, and lost his crest. He has gifted me with his chicks through the years feeding them on the ledge outside my window. I had never heard of half female half male. What a sight to see! Thanks!
Shelley 01/09/15 06:31 am Wow, indeed. My first reaction was that it had to be photo-shopped. It looks just too perfectly evenly split. But there does appear to be valid science behind this phenomenon. So very interesting. Thanks, Terry
Trishrg 01/10/15 08:18 am This is a very cool bird.

I have doubts about it being anything other than a partially leucistic male missing pigment in some feathers in a really cool way.

Chimera Cardinal?

Since it was not caught and studied, the author really should not be making any claim as to it being both sexes and leading us poor humans astray.



I remember your Cardinal who lost his feathers Celeste. Good to know he is thriving!
