This lovely female cardinal started visiting my feeders last fall. Although she only has one usable leg, she gets around quite well with a slightly off-center hop, hence her nickname Eileen. She has no trouble flying, and I am always so happy to see her snacking at the feeders and taking sips from the bird bath.
