Brokebill

This is NOT the cardinal that has been tapping routinely on every window of the house...except the one where I have placed a rubber snake on the ledge below. That is one of the males. This female cardinal does have a problem though. The broken bill does not seem to be interfering with her eating as she is still nice and plump.

As striking as the males are, I think the females Cardinals are more beautiful. They have so many subtle-to-striking colours. Hopefully her beak will stay strong. Lovely capture.

When I look at that beak, I wince and want to put a bandage on it.

I feel the same 'One Woman" because it looks so sore, which is silly, because it is just like a broken nail. Oh well.
