THIS IS NOT YOUR CHRISTMAS CARD CARDINAL


Responses

  1. One of the things I miss from living in the east — the colorful cardinals with their beautiful, varied songs.

  2. Is it known whether or not such individuals are accepted as breeding partners, part of the flock, etc.?

    • I have personal knowledge of at least three leucistic birds mated and nesting with normal looking mates–Cal Towhee, robin and Red-tailed Hawk. The robin had off-spring with white faces like the leucistic parent.
