Dennis Landhammer. Device. Or, a
cardinal close proper.Since the cardinal is red with some minor
black markings on the face and 
only a single major can be derived for
difference of type of bird, this is in 
conflict with several coats
which feature red birds on an Or field: Fysher ("Or, a
kingfisher close gules.", cited in Papworth, p. 305), Aquila
("Or, an 
eagle close gules." ibid., p. 301)
and Cheeke ("Or, a cock gules, beaked sable.", ibid.,
p. 295). 

It will probably be ruled a weirdness but registrable since it is a New World species.
