cardinal skull


I found this underneath my building surrounded by red feathers. Not sure how it got there. Probably cat.

I’m pretty sure it’s a cardinal. Since they are illegal to keep I just snapped a few pictures and buried it so I wouldn’t be tempted at all. 

I can still admire the pictures, though, right? It’s so beautiful!

NOTE: It is illegal to keep almost any bird in the US. Do not be tempted by their prettiness. !!BE AWARE OF THE MIGRATORY BIRD TREATY ACT!!
