|Papa Cardinal was pacing yesterday. He kept a close eye on the area surrounding the nest.|
|He was too nervous to sit in the nearby chair so he settled on the arm instead.|
|Then he hopped back on the feeder support where he kept an watchful eye on me.|
|I think the waiting was getting to him, don't you?|
|This afternoon, I was thrilled when I looked through the window at the nest and saw this tiny fledgling's head. I saw two heads but couldn't get a photo of both.|
|An object used in building the nest prevents clear viewing of the tiny bird, but I did my best to photograph him.|
|I have a sneaky suspicion this little critter is very, very hungry.|
|When my curiosity got the best of me, I went outside and climbed a ladder to see exactly what was going on in the nest.|
|As you can see, one of the three eggs hasn't hatched yet. I hope the second fledgling is okay. Perhaps he's simply resting. I think I'd get tired too from holding my mouth open that wide! |
Isn't this exciting? I'll be back with more as the days go by.
