The Red Cardinal Baby Birds...The Black Mask Bird in their nest

The Black Mask Cardinal Baby....I noticed for months the Red Cardinals hanging around my backyard. I would whistle to them and talk to them and they would come close to listen. The Cardinals are not afraid of me. I have checked on the babies from a little ways away and they are doing fine, I am keeping up with the baby cardinals as this backyard adventure continues. I hope to see them take their first flight. What a happy day that will be for me.
