Description

April 3, 2017 after a storm knocked down the Lonicera sempervirens vine, a broken egg was seen on the ground. On further inspection a nest was found tucked deep into the middle of the vine. In the nest was one egg. The male and female cardinal were seen to enter the site several times over the next few days. When they stopped entering, the nest was inspected to find the egg was weak; it was removed. There were two other sites observed in our yard with N. Cardinals nesting but did not get close for fear of disrupting. Did take some pictures on April 30, 2017 of a male and female N.Cardinal fledging one of their young.
