Here it is:

Three baby cardinals in the nest!
The parents work hard getting food and feeding the youngsters.

Yesterday afternoon, one fledgling left the nest.
It landed on the ground below the oleander bushes.
And it was still there this morning.
Although it may not be very good at flying yet, the little cardinal has two attentive parents to care for it.
I suspect the cardinal couple has been living in our yard for about three years but this was the first time we saw their nest. And now a different kind of nest is in our front yard which I will probably report on in a future blog post. Have a nice week!
