Hurraah

The mom Cardinal is still on her nest, I didn't scare her off.  And I checked a few minutes ago, she has laid another egg, so now there are 3. You can see pix of 2 of the eggs on the post before this one.


Also, the Eastern Phoebe nest on the porch ledge has 5 eggs in it.  She's gotten used to me going in and out, and usually stays on the nest.  I'm waiting anxiously to see the little ones peeking out of the nest.  

A better photo of the mom.

How sweet! I hope the babies do ok in the cold weather this weekend. Are you warming up yet? It was just sleeting a little bit ago. I am not liking it at all!

Isn't she cute? I love to see those babies up close. I hope we have some close to us this year like we did last year, too. Now if the cats don't get them!!!! xo Diana

Wow that is so neat you have 2 nests you can watch. I hope you can get some pics when they hatch. I don't think we have eastern phoebes here, at least I've never seen one.
