This week we've had a large group of cardinals around the feeder and
fruit trees in our yard in South Burlington. Among them is a female
with a fairly severely damaged bill. Everything I can find online
suggests avian pox as the culprit. Does anyone have experience with
this? She seems otherwise healthy and must be eating somehow.
