If you remember, last Thursday I posted about the family of cardinals that were using my willow as their home. It's hard to believe but, as of this evening, only one little guy is left and I have a feeling that he'll be gone in the morning. Here is a pictorial journey of my little birdies (I encourage you to click on the photos for greater detail.) Enjoy!
At first, I thought that I saw 2 birds, then I thought that there were as many as five! But, finally I saw that there were 3 little birdies in this seemingly tiny nest.
Mom and Dad take turns throughout the day feeding their little ones. They will eat insects, buds, seeds, and fruits.
Everyone should be so lucky because this has been a highlight of my summer garden, 2008!
