Female Cardinal on her Nest

4-16-2020  Well, she’s on the nest for the second day in a row.  She disappeared for a day or so.  We had a littlet snow.  Tonight we could get three to five inches.  I don’t know if the eggs will make it.   Meanwhile, I don’t know where the male flew off to.  We haven’t seen him feeding her. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

The Cardinal and her little Family


 

SHE’s in there!  It’s hard to shoot through glass at an angle. I’m afraid these images won’t break the bank.  Whatever!  Hopefully, I’ll be able to get outside and take some decent images before everyone is fone.

4-10-2020  In the past few days I’ve been amazed, along with my wife, Jean, watching a Female Cardinal, slowly but doggedly, build a nest for her coming youngsters.  The nest is being built not 15 feet from our sliding glass door – and on top of a low schrub.  She is very diligent in her efforts.  Placing little sticks and other materials ever so gently into place.  Then she’ll scoot about creating a rounded bottom where she’ll slide back and forth smoothing out a round egg laying spot for her and her coming brood. Meanwhile, her mate, the dashing Red Male, sits guarding the whole business about 20 to 30 feet away in a tree.  This entire labor continues on and off during the daylight hours.  When evening approaches the two of them disappear until the next day.  When I first look out in the morning – at first light, she’s usually on rhe nest.

4-11-2020  It’s another day and our female is on and off the nest.  No sign yet she’s started a family.  May be ro early?

4-12-2020 More to come!

I captured these two friends below our backyard feeder.

I thought I had displayed this image earlier. It appears I did not.

Two new Images with three previous ones – Winter Scenes

 

I thought I’d combine two new images – for the first time – with some older shots.

As you know, I love Cardinals and show them often … I’ll continue to do so.  This handsome fella was awaiting another turn on the feeder below.  Something caught his attention just as I snapped his image.

This is not the shot I was hoping for.  There had been twelve Males on the ground when I went to grab my camera – I came back to the window and a good many had been spooked off.
