Arcade, NY, USA
For a few days, I noticed a male and female N. Cardinal repeatedly flying near a small cedar tree. I checked the tree and could not find a nest. So, I gave up. Then, on another day, I just had to check for a nest again because I was still seeing the adult cardinals in the area. This time, I found the nest with the fully feathered three nestlings inside. The parents did a great job building this nest in the thickest and most difficult part to access (for me) section of the tree.
