Charlie Stephenson looked into his back yard at Alabaster, Alabama, when she had the pleasure of seeing an incredibly rare (and beautiful) sight.
There was a yellow Northern Cardinal, something biology professor Geoffrey Hill of Auburn University describes as a "one-in-one-million-situation". While Stephenson in her backyard is used to red cardinals, yellows are extremely rare and their color comes from a genetic mutation .
When Stephenson regularly explains the colorful attendance figures – Jeremy Black Vogel on film.
"This yellow cardinal shows a rare mutation that causes the metabolic process to produce a different kind of pigment than the typical red color," wrote Black. "According to a biologist at Auburn University, this mutation is so rare that only one year is seen in the United States."
According to Professor Hill, who is a bird curator and researcher, the cardinal is a grown man – and a bird he has never seen.
