Cardinals

Some months ago I posted about a bald-headed cardinal that was in our backyard. I had found info on the internet and asked at the local wildbird feed store about it - they all seemed to think that he had molted and would get his head feathers back.

Well ... he didn't:


I call him Phillip Diller, since he does look like Phyllis Diller's brother.

This morning I saw four birds that look like young female cardinals around our feeders. Then Phillip and a larger female cardinal joined them. I think these young ones are Phil's kids.

So bald is sexy among birds, too, eh?

An Internet photographer named Paul Sveda found a white-headed duck that was supposed to be brown. All of this is clearly the work of global warming. Or Iranian nuclear testing. One of those.

I feel sorry for him. Baldness does not become cardinals.

Maybe the thing is trying to start some kind of bird fashion trend.

Watch for some cool tats next.

Sorry, but that is one ugly bird. Some men carry off bald very well, but not poor Phillip. I see he's not afraid to be close to the house and window there.
