With all the talks in the media about the half male and half female cardinal, I was wondering about this bird.

I've seen it multiple times around my feeder here in Virginia, but was finally able to take a picture today.

Is it transforming from juvenile to adult? Or winter to summer coat transition?

Interesting. Most of them I see are totally red, without any of the brown patches. Or maybe I don't notice it as much as I try to take pictures from the front ?

Either way, thanks for the clarification!

He's probably molting for the breeding season, that would cause the brown patches. ?
