Three photos of the same bird. Not sure if this anomaly is due to the oft reported “bald-headed” Cardinal molt, some type of disease, or some other cause. (male pattern baldness perhaps 😉



Anomalous Cardinal Crown

This bird has been hanging out at the feeders in my yard for at least 10 days.

This could be molting, or sometimes mites will cause this
