Cardinals

Standard

We have had many cardinals visit our feeders during the course of the spring and beginnings of summer. Now that the babies have fledged we can see many juvenile Cardinals raiding the feeders. What I found interesting this time is that the male Cardinal was feeding a fledging that must have been quite new. The baby would barely be flying, try to land on the feeder and not feel comfortable and would flutter to the comfort of the tree limbs. I have to apologize in advanced for the poor picture quality, trying to take shots through the window screens and not to alert the dogs…our newest mutt will jump on the couch and peer out the window hoping to see squirrels and be released to the yard. In doing so, they often scare the birds from the feeders. I meant to post this closer to Father’s Day but as usual the days and weeks seem to quickly fly by.
