NORTHAMPTON, Mass., May 31 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts woman said she investigated bird sounds in her yard and discovered a baby cardinal with two heads and three beaks.

April Britt of Northampton said she and her husband followed the sounds of squawking birds in their back yard to a tree where they discovered the baby female cardinal with the unusual deformities, WGGB-TV, Springfield, reported Thursday.

"My husband says, 'Oh my God. Look at this poor thing! That's an oddity if I ever saw one,'" Britt said. "I've never seen anything like that before."

Britt said she discovered the bird on the ground a few hours later and donned a plastic glove to return it to the tree. She said the baby cardinal was nowhere to be seen the following morning.

"I would like to know she survived." Britt said. "The neighbor is going to keep an eye to see if she sees her."
