Amidst The Death...Fragile Life!

A short respite from the doom and gloom, to take a quick look at new life coming into the world. These are cardinal chicks; a mated pair of cardinals nested in my hedge and built this small home. I've been watching over the eggs - and befriending the parents - for weeks, hoping the eggs would make it to hatching time (and hopefully more). Yesterday they were speckled eggs. Today they are chicks, hungry for some predigested-worm-love from mama.

Good luck, young birds.
