New Life

We had some Cardinals make a home in one of the rose bushes round back.  It was an exciting time.

At first we spied the nest, then the eggs, and then finally, the little birdies with their mouths wide open.

Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the moment they flew away tho.
Maybe they will be back next year :)

oh awesome! We had a robin build a nest on the light on the garage this year. I don't think in 15 years of living here a bird has actually done that yet!? She had one baby and it was so neat to watch him pop up to be fed. Of course I never got any pictures. And sadly no one has been in the nest since we came back from vacation, I don't know what happened. Do they vacate when the baby is old enough to move on out?? :(

Hey Val.. Yeah, the hubs said that the cardinals vacate the nest when the little ones are about a couple of weeks old or something. We've seen the adults flying about a few times tho.
