Safari: St. Louis Cardinal

Here is a female St. Louis Cardinal seen far from her natural habitat. Notice the camera-like appendage growing from her talons and her distinctive Obama plumage. This variety, called Delores Splendida, can be found most of the year along the banks of the Mississippi feasting on artisanal cheeses. Although any fermented beverage will slake this hardy bird’s thirst, the Delores Splendida prefers a Gimlet or Bloody Mary, depending mainly on the time of the day. Despite her stunning looks this bird means business and fears no predator.
