This is the latest I've ever seen baby/juvenile cardinals coming with a parent to be fed.  I've been hearing them for a week or two now but it is soooo very hard to capture a picture as the cardinals come to eat at dawn or dusk......terrible lighting.  Yesterday, after a dismal day with spotty rain, the sun popped out briefly, just for a moment before setting, allowing me to capture mom and .....I'm not sure.  Tonight she was at the feeder with two (which is more normal) but again the lighting was awful and I could not get a good comparison for gender.

  1. I find it amusing to watch the young beg,when they are every bit as big as the adults.I guess that is nature's way.
