Wordless Wednesday: Juvenile Cardinal

JuvenileCardinal_IMG_4565

Almost wordless: Yesterday morning I looked out the window and saw a juvenile cardinal hopping across the driveway. Before I could get a good look at him, he hopped into the shrubs, his daddy following close behind. Last year their spring nests were parasitized by brown-headed cowbirds, a species that reproduces by laying eggs in other birds’ nests, so I was thrilled to see this little guy so early in the breeding season.
