Feeding Time at the Feeder........
The cardinal couple succeeded in hatching one more youngster. They had raised three earlier in the season and here is a female feeding the one new little one at the top. It was getting late in the day so it was hard to get a good photo. The female would eat a few seeds and then she would pick one up and feed it to the the young one. Eventually the mother flew off and the baby bird just sat there. Once in a while it decided it could pick up its own seed. I could tell it would prefer to be beak fed.
Thanks for stopping by this Monday.
