I've had a very strange looking male cardinal coming to my feeder, often in
the company of a normal cardinal pair. His head is completely gray. At
first I thought it was gray feathering, but when I took a photo a bit zoomed
in I discovered that the gray is skin. He has lost all the feathering on
his head except for a few wisps on the top.
Any ideas what could have caused it? Has anyone seen something similar?
Here is the link to a photo:
