Not Just Any Old Mr. Cardinal by gaylewood

Not Just Any Old Mr. Cardinal

This is Mr. Cardinal with the split beak. Last February I posted a photo of Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal sharing the feeder and at that time I noticed the male had a split beak. Here is a link to that original photo:

When I was taking photos of cardinals on Monday, I was surprised to notice that it was the same Mr. Cardinal with the split beak. Mrs. Cardinal was sitting on a branch waiting patiently as he was eating. I posted a photo of Mrs. Cardinal waiting patiently in my Extras album:

I'm happy to know Mr. Cardinal with the split beak is doing well and that Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal are still visiting my feeders.

Beautiful bird, great capture

He seems to be okay - I guess he can get enough nourishment with his beak broken. I know I would be in trouble if I didn’t fave my two front teeth!

How wonderful Mr Cardinal with the split beak is back, he's a real beauty

Super light, focus, bokeh

Well I guess he is back...................I love the pop of red cardinals give, only wish they came this far north!
January 10th, 2018  
Nice shot
January 10th, 2018  
I've never known that to happen.

Still beautiful, despite the damaged beak and if he were to have any sort of image problem, your wonderful photo should sort that out. Both Mr and Mrs are great shots Gayle.

Beautiful colour and it's nice they have come back to see you!
January 10th, 2018  
Nice to know he is doing well. Great capture.

Happy that he is doing well. He looks happy and healthy and that is probably the reason the female is waiting ;) Wonder what caused that split beak, though.
January 11th, 2018  
A beautifully coloured bird.

These are both great shots Gayle - I love the catchlights in the eyes. How cool to know that it's the same Mr Cardinal from before. Assuming he still has the same wife! ;-)

So great for you to have him come back again, he seems OK...Such a lovely colour.
January 11th, 2018  
another great shot. He must still be able to eat with that poor beak. Do you know if it will grow out.
January 11th, 2018  
A great find and capture. Lucky for you that he returned and that you can point him out again this year.
January 11th, 2018  
What a great colour they bird are, wonderful shot.
January 11th, 2018  
Beautiful capture Gayle, it's wonderful that his damaged beak doesn't seem to be interfering with his feeding :)
January 11th, 2018  
Super shot, nice to know he is doing well, it looks more like a deformity at least he’s managing. Fav
January 11th, 2018  
Glad he is doing well! Great shot!
