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.
