    This pitiful cardinal showed up at my bird feeder this week. I hope it is just molting. Anyone else ever see this phenomenon?[​IMG][/img]

    My parents have had one like that at their feeders for two years straight. They have wetlands behind them and have dozens of cardinals. Never more than one bald one at a time though. It's a little creepy but he seems healthy enough.
