This Northern Cardinal nest is well hidden in a bushy cedar tree. I needed a step ladder to get a good view of the three nestlings, which are really packed into the small nest. The mom and dad were in the nearby trees softly chirping their concerns.

    Oh no, is that a cowbird baby?

    Hi Robin,

    Don’t worry, this is not a cowbird chick! I wrote the title and caption as if the Cardinal Nestling was questioning me – as I looked into the nest to take the photo! Sorry for the confusion.
