Distraction 155: Bilateral Gynandromorph Cardinal

This bird is clawing its beak (since it can't thumb its nose) at standard bird convention.  It's male on one side and female on the other.

"While observing the cardinal, he noticed that male cardinals would try to chase it out of their territory as soon as they saw it.  Females however, were not bothered by it."
