Yellow-pigmented male northern cardinal: this is most likely a genetic mutation that renders the pigments the bird draws from foods to make it appear with yellow coloration rather than red. This is called xanthochroism; in addition to cardinals, it has also been seen in rose-breasted grosbeaks.

what does that mean for the bird though? If all other cardinals are red is this yellow one going to have a hard time finding a mate?

edit: never mind! I read one of the links in the comments & he found a mate ♡

**Phenomenal**!! I grew up in NW Ohio, with cardinals, blue jays, robins, sparrows, etc. A yellow cardinal just **blows my mind**. Thank you, OP.
