Nature's Nursery

By what I can tell, Ma & Pa Cardinal had twins and they actually look like birds. I can't believe the transformation in just two days. What growth, what development! Their eyes are open, they're squawlin' for vittles. Before we know it, they'll be flexing their leg muscles very soon as they eye the branches in the bush and ready themselves for exploration.

Ma & Pa are really working for a living as they protect their humble little nest from the Blue Jays. On Monday I watched a feathered dogfight between the trees in the front yard once the Jays learned of the couple's new bundles of joy. Ma & Pa worked as a team fending off their babies' predators, flying from tree to tree, taking jabs at the Jays to eventually send them flying off to another yard nearby.

Me three! I love those blue eyes they have. They look like sapphires.
