I hope its OK to post more than one entry.  This entry is another experience that I enjoyed watching unfold.  Mother and father cardinal were busy flying back and forth just working up a storm.  I knew there was a nest in the bushes, and I figured they were just feeding like they had been, but didn’t realize that the baby cardinal was getting ready to emerge for the first time.

In pic1, we have mother cardinal watching intently.  Pic 2, we have father cardinal with a nice little morsel in his mouth for baby. And in pic 3, we see the baby cardinal emerge for the first time. (this is a partial repost from one of my earlier blog posts titled “First Flight.”

Enjoy!!
