The baby cardinals are growing so quickly these past few days. Eyes open, feathers filling in. The kids are growing up!
The above picture was taken yesterday. They are getting bigger and more alert. We thought that it might be a couple more days, but...
Today, they are gone...
So sad, but also so happy!
My daughter heard a lot of chirping this morning, hoping that it was just mom & dad getting the kids out of the nest and into the cover of the woods.
Hope nothing bad happened.
The nest was still wonderful to observe these past couple of weeks.
We'll miss the babies!
