All of the Cardinals are molting. In other words, they are loosing their feathers and growing in the new ones! This happens in little patches at a time instead of all at once. (Check the Google Search Box for more on the molting process for birds).
So, your photostudy today will reveal birds in different stages of plumage. This occurs in August (in Texas) and in another week they will all have the new fall feathers. For today, they still look funny! Laugh a little and Enjoy!
