Cardinal watching, the babies have grown!


So, I went to check on the cardinal nest Monday night and it appears that there are 2 females flying back and forth to feed these babies although I could be wrong.  I got a couple of really good pics of mama cardinal as she travelled around looking for food for the brood. She flies back and forth over and over again to feed these little ones.

The babies have real feathers now but are still not very cute as their beaks are bigger than their heads.  They only make peeping noises when mama flies in otherwise they are quiet and I think this is why MoMo my killer cat hasnt noticed them, thankfully.  I will post more updates as they get bigger! Another 10 days or so and they will be fledglings!
