Early Friday morning empty.
Upon reading about cardinals - discovered that the fledglings leave the nest about 10 - 13 days after hatching.
Once the nest is abandoned it will not be reused. The mother and father move onto a new place to begin another brood.
What an amazing design - the bottom is made up of leaves and some small dried twigs and such.
Very small inside - no wonder those babies leave so soon.
Well the nest may be empty but I am looking forward to seeing those youngsters at the bird feeders.
Hope you will stop back again soon. Have a blessed week.
Today I received a lovely unexpected gift in the mail. My friend Debra Smith at monniebeanfolkart.blogspot.com surprised me with this ...
We are so glad you stopped to visit. We've just been informed that these are the "Dog Days of Summer". Why would that be...
The garden in June is always a treat. Peonies unfold and dance in the breeze... Irises too! ...
