This cardinal has been frequenting our feeders for the last two weeks. The coloration is strange but it looks like a male cardinal with some unusual color. If it was later in the season,I might think it is a young male that has not totally taken the solid red color of a male, but it is too early for young.

One reply on “Male Cardinal Displaying Leucistic Coloration”

Saw one like here (twice yesterday — once alone and next time with adult son) n Uxbridge, MA. More orange, but can’t be anything else. NOT an oriole or warbler. looked like a big orange Cardinal.
