Cardinal Fledglings

They were so adorable.....
Once again we had young fledglings in our garden.
This time Cardinals.  We had seen the parents with
twigs in their mouths mid spring, obviously in the
nest building process.  How sweet to see their babies
in our garden, eating flowers from a palm pod.
The female was smaller than the male....
her coloring beautiful soft browns and subdued reds
dotted about her body.
The male was spectacular....his wings will grow
much longer eventually.  You can see the flower
in his beak in this photo.

Couldn't help making a collage of these wonderful,
feathered, God created wonders.....

Enjoying these simple pleasures of life!  Dee Dee
