[ANSTHRLD] Cardinal Proper

Consider a cardinal (the male bird, not the holy dude) on arms.
1) Is there such a thing as a cardinal proper (I suspect there isn't)?
2) If there isn't a cardinal proper, how would you blazon a cardinal as being red with different colored legs and feet (often depicted, inaccurately, as sable or Or) and beak (in real life generally orange or reddish orange, but often depicted as Or)?  The only tinctures that are definitely wanted are a red body with black on the face; the rest is open to whatever would work best.  (Field is undecided).
