Well Fed Northern Cardinal

(Toledo, OH) "Well fed" is a better euphemism for "fat," as I can personally attest, and such is the case with the cardinals that regularly flock to my bird feeders. They gorge themseleves on sunflower seeds and other components of the bird food I supply, and this red fellow looks a bit too stuffed to fly, as if he might need a turbocharger to get airborne once again.

Luckily, the bird's wing muscles have grown this summer to accommodate the extra girth, but this is one puffy cardinal.
