On another note, we've had two fledgling Northern Cardinals in our backyard on and off this weekend. They are (bless their hearts) the ugliest little things I've seen in a while, but oh what beauties they will become. On Saturday, this little guy finally flew over the fence into the alley. I hope that he's doing well. There are a number of cats that roam the neighborhood and I hope that his flying skills improved enough to get away from any mean cats that may have tried to get him.
I'm watching for them at the feeder, hoping I'll see them again before we move next week. Mama and Papa Cardinal were never far away while they were in the yard, so maybe they'll pick my feeder to bring their babies to when they are better fliers!
