More Time for Birds

I’m off service for a while, which means I have more time for birds. Right now, my wife and I are trying not to spook the cardinals. It looks like they’ve finished the nest and we’re waiting for the eggs.

This will be the first time we’ve seen cardinals nesting in our yard. It’s a little strange, because the cardinals chose the same evergreen tree as the robins did last year.

The robins built a pretty sturdy nest but the cardinals just threw one together. It looks pretty flimsy.

A couple of years ago, chipping sparrows raised chicks in one of our front yard evergreen trees. They were cute.

But the baby robins looked like little dinosaurs.

I imagine the new cardinals will look pretty scruffy.
