***Continuing rarity, finally located after about 3 hours of searching, foraging in the ground in leaf litter amid bunch grasses below the group picnic area by the lake shore. Observed with Lindsey and Keith Story for about a half-hour as it rummaged in leaf litter, crept through vine tangles, and skulked in dense reeds. Recorded loud rattle call; audio to be added later.

Given while the bird was stationary on a somewhat exposed branch extending from a dense tangle. Lots of recreation noise in the background (boats, etc.).

Northern Cardinal/Pyrrhuloxia

This individual shows some plumage characteristics that suggest NOCA-PYRR hybrid origin, but to my eye the bill seems be a fairly typical NOCA bill. At least one expert has suggested it could be a long-lived female beginning to acquired traces of male-like plumage. It appeared to be pair-bonded with male Northern Cardinal; some courtship feeding was observed.
