Bird I can't find in any birdbooks
Wish I had a picture, but bird visits only occasionally and I'm never prepared to take a picture. I have searched every birdbook
I can find at the book store and haven't seen this bird anywhere.
It looks quite like a male cardinal, except from its neck up it is gray-blue and has no crown. The beak is orange like a cardinal's and the rest of the body is bright red. The wings have a little streaking of brown.
We live in Belpre, Ohio on the Ohio/WV border.
Anyone have any idea what this bird is?
