I have been trying to get a few good pics of the baby cardinal and it's parents for the last week now, but have not had much luck. You might remember the nest we found with 3 eggs in it back in May. Well it looks like one of the three babies has survived.
Well this morning while sitting at the kitchen counter enjoying my coffee, I heard a thud then saw a streak of gray go across the window. I looked down to the ground and there was the baby flat on it's back... knocked out cold.
So what do you suppose I did? Yep, I went out and picked it up. It was really out of it. I immediately took it around back and put it on the table under the trees. Poor thing was so out of it, dozing in and out. After he started to come to, I walked away and just left it there hoping mom and dad would show up.
Dad finally came to the table and was very attentive and concerned. He would hop right up to it and chirp, then hop to the edge of the table and look back as if to say" Well, come one."
After about 30 minutes I started to walk out towards the table and they both took off.
