Update: Apparently Mom and Dad abandoned the nest. Since it was located right above the water faucet and we were watering constantly (until two days ago), there was just too much activity. Two tiny eggs remain.
In our side yard there is a lovely lilac tree; it's even lovelier now that there is a cardinal nest! We have been entertained with the chirping of the Daddy a during the day and evening. He's keeping a very close eye on his house for sure! Adjacent to that bed is the garage with a weathervane. He perched there yesterday along with a little friend who just happened to be flying by. They were so cute!
We haven't heard any baby chirps yet, but we're listening. Enjoy your day!
