Cardinals 2012

A recap of the Cardinals that nested by the kitchen window this Spring 
- their first brood of 3 fledglings 
- Mama Cardinal building her nest -

- Dad fueling up -

- sheathing is turning white & becoming brittle - 
siblings help pick sheathing off of head feathers

 - feeding is constant now for the parents - 
Dad is taking a shift

 it is getting crowded in the nest

 they're out! 
(got this one out of the street - Mama & Daddy were in a panic)

 resting while Mama & Daddy relocate the other two fledglings 

- staying in contact -
responds to every "peep" from Mama & Daddy
