image for 'One in a million' yellow cardinal spotted in Alabama

An extremely rare cardinal has birders and biologists flocking to Shelby County, Alabama this week, as images of a yellow cardinal have circulated around social media.

She said she's been birding for decades but it took her some time to figure out what she was seeing.

"Then I realized it was a cardinal, and it was a yellow cardinal.".

The yellow cardinal is still around, she said.

"I've been birdwatching in the range of cardinals for 40 years and I've never seen a yellow bird in the wild," Hill said.

"There are probably a million bird feeding stations in that area so very very roughly, yellow cardinals are a one in a million mutation.".

"I'm trying to get a unique photograph and that is the yellow cardinal next to a traditional North American red cardinal," Black said. »
