HALF MALE, HALF FEMALE CARDINAL
On September 19, a reader of "Why Evolution Is True" submitted photos of a gynandromorph — half male, half female — cardinal. Half of the bird was a brilliant crimson red color, representing its male side, while the other half was a fawn, gray-brown tone, which represents its female side. Scientists are unsure how this exactly happens, which makes this cardinal even that much more remarkable.
