In recent days we have had a female Northern Cardinal coming to our feeders that has a very bright pink section down the middle of the tail.  The rest of the bird looks perfectly normal.

The beautiful female cardinal came back this evening late and we all got to see it. I have a Sony Cyber-shot tiny digital with a 10x zoom. My husband captured some pictures through our slightly dirty double-pane window near the feeders. The pictures serve to prove I wasn't out of my head yesterday (being the only one who saw this bird). I don't know how to post pictures. I sent them to Larry Lade. The bird has more than white checks as I thought yesterday. Even his nape is white. The crest is reddish, but most of head is very white with just a few dark feathers where it is usually black. I am asking whether this is partial albinism or leucistic. If anyone is interested, I could email you direct some pictures.
