This is probably a condition that occurs in many species, but not all species have such clear distinctions between the male animal and female animal that is easy to spot.

Cardinals are the most well-known sexually dimorphic birds in North America, so the anomaly is immediately noticeable. What then makes these species so fascinating? Most animals affected by gynandromorphism are sterile, but this specimen may not be because the left side (where the ovary is located in birds) is female.
