Strange beak Minnesota Usa

I have been having a bird frequent my feeder that looks very odd. It is about the size of a robin, but has a huge beak with a hump on it. It looks like it might be molting. It also seems to have a tumor on it's back.

Lol! Kinda small for a dodo, and since it can fly quite swiftly, I would have to say the dodo is still dead. This one was just seen again with a male cardinal. Could it be a female cardinal thathas lost all of it's headfeathers? Would that make it's beak look deformed or larger?

I strongly urge you to take many more pictures of this bird. As many as possible, and then post them. Please.

I'm still thinking Dodo :)
