I was hiking on a Metro Park trail when I saw this female cardinal watching me! Other hikers passed by but never saw her. I wasn’t about to give away her nesting place although the nest was clearly visible! I stayed about four feet from her and told her how beautiful she was and what a nice nest she had. She just quietly stayed on her nest and let me take this photo. What a magical moment.
