MSNBC is calling this a gynandromorph cardinal but if you ask me, it's got a whole host of issues. Sure it looks half male and half female--but what's with the lack of pigment in some of the breast feathers? Check out more photos of this pigment missing, half male, half female cardinal here. A birder supposedly got lost while trekking down a half mile trail looking for wood ducks at the Jean Lafitte Barataria Preserve. There's a more detailed account of the story here but it still leaves me with more questions than answers.
AWESOME goshawk video:
ABA Young Birders Camp to Texas cancelled, other camps still available. As is their Half Moon Bay conference.
