Cardinal Babies. Chickens?

Cardinal Babies
Daddy keeping an eye out
One of the neighbor's chickens
And....I think there's mockingbird babies on the other side of the fence the way I was getting yelled at yesterday.

I can see why the birds are called cardinals.

Ugly little things when they're young, aren't they?

I have a cardinal pair, but don't know where they built the nest. It's somewhere in the woods. I don't often see them, but hear them singing.

Those bird babies are sooooooooo gorgeous! We don't get cardinals here what a pity. Okay, we get lots of other pretty birds! Hugs, Valerie

Pat Hatt said...

Well your place is just going to the birds

Icy BC said...

When birds are still babies, I can't tell! I just call them baby birds :)

Birgit said...

The babies are always a bit ugly and show their dinosaur roots but they turn into such beautiful little birds...unless they are vultures:) What is an exception are the chicks...so cute that usually become dinner for us later on. Oops I went macabre there

Sandra Cox said...

Aren't they gorgeous?

Sandra Cox said...

Little ugly ducklings that grow into beautiful swans, er birds.

Sandra Cox said...

They do look different, don't they?

Sandra Cox said...

When we lived out in the country we never saw the nests either, too many trees:) There's probably all kinds of baby birds there.

Baby chicks and ducks are awfully cute. Not dinner for me. Nope.

Lots of babies all around, I enjoy watching them grow.I sat yesterday just listening to the forest families around me.

Sandra Cox said...

They keep them well hidden don't they? I never did see the nest just saw the little baby fledglings in the yard.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Yvonne! Heading your way:)

Sandra Cox said...

Ha!

Sandra Cox said...

They sure are. Where I previously lived we had about 2 dozen and they were so beautiful in the winter against the snow. Of course, you have all kinds of beauties at your place:)

Sandra Cox said...

Indeed:)

Sandra Cox said...

Ahhh, sounds very pleasant.

Oh, they are WONDERFUL. I am sad that I'm quite sure I have or will miss my wren's babies learning to fly. Lucky you to have photos and all!
