Hey birdie.

To my surprise I happened upon this beautiful nest in my rose bush the other week. I suppose mama bird thought that even though it was quite low to the ground it was hidden and protected by thorns. I’ve been carefully watching and anticipating the arrival of some new bird friends. I was able to carefully snap a couple of pics while mama cardinal was away.

I walked down the driveway to get the mail and a bird fluttered quickly out of my rose bush. Odd I thought, and after a little peek I found this inside all the branches!

I was hoping to get a peek at them hatching but mama cardinal has been doing some serious nesting the last couple days. Here's why! Look at these freshy fresh bird friends!
