Female cardinal becoming a mother

These photos show case 3 things, 1 the mother sitting on her eggs protected them and keep them warm. 2, her rolling over the egg so the yoke stays all good and the bird stays safe and is allowed to hatch. And 3 all 4 of the cardinal eggs in the nest.

Cardinal Visits Feeder!!!

After months of waiting for the cardinals, there finally here! There are at least 5.

Cardinal Nest

Never seen a cardinal nest like this before!

I saw cardinals building this nest and have never seen a bird nest like this! I don’t want to use this door and destroy the nest. It is now November, so the little ones are gone. Should i leave the nest alone? Will they come back? It is a perfectly protected area for a nest – smart cardinals!

The Cardinals Are Hatching!

A neighborhood cardinal nest with 3 eggs has begun to hatch! We’re actually not 100% sure if they are all cardinals or if a cowbird snuck in there, but we are very excited to see the first healthy young!

Cardinal Mate Feeding

This Northern Cardinal pair was out at the feeder this morning, and the male was feeding his mate a bite of seed.

Cardinal nesting

We have 3 eggs!

Our first Cardinal nest!! She did a good job.

Some photos I forgot to submit of the last fledgling being taken care of before fledging.

Some photos I forgot to submit of the last fledgling being taken care of before fledging. He sure has nice parents! The cowbird nestling already fledged the day before.
