Description

Two images of a cardinal partially hatched, initial signs of hatching attempts in other eggs. Nest is in gardenia bush on my back deck, about 18″ from my glass slider. Mamma is still getting used to me being around.

Cardinal Hatching

Breaking out of your shell is hard work, for humans and cardinal hatchlings! A little nap before working at it again... note the beginnings of signs of hatching in the other eggs, too.
