Papa Cardinal

The door was open and I heard a bit of a fuss outside.  When I looked out I saw a Papa Cardinal feeding its baby.   






It's hot and humid and there is a thunderstorm on the way so I am closing down for the night.

How lucky you are to witness this feeding and love between father and baby.

Hope the thunder moves over quickly from one who dislikes storms

Can you hear the baby Cardinal from where you are???? The baby's just shake all over and make a tingly sound when Daddy comes to feed them...It's just so so cute....

Great pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

I thought it may be Poppa feeding Momma....it's part of the mating /bonding ritual.

What a beautiful insight into parenthood! WOW.
We have Pheobes nesting, and chickadees.
I listen to them and don't intrude, can't wait for them to come out!

Oh, how sweet, and it's almost Father's Day. What a good Daddy.

I hope your storm wasn't too bad.

Oh my goodness! That is just the cutest thing. It's nice to know the Dads help out too.

I'm so happy to have a little time to check out what you all are doing. The last few weeks have been crazy and it won't be easier for us for another couple of weeks. It was a happy crazy... but it'll be nice to catch up anyway.

A great series of photos. It is cute to see papa feeding his young. Im back home after visiting my grand babies in LA. It is cool here now....come on over.

I love seeing the birds feeding their young,you were so lucky to be able to take these lovely photos,something I have not been able to do as yet.
I close my computer down when there is thunder in the air because we often get hit by lightning,as the towers of the castle are so high and have a lightning conductor on the roof.Last time we had a bad hit,it blew the electrics and fried the telephone.
Hope your storm passed without incident.

I had no idea that is what a baby cardinal looks like, that's really cute.

Wonderful captures, Denise. Lucky you.
I love to see parents feeding their young. At the moment we're watching the bluetits that nested in our box and have now emerged into the wide world.

Thanks for visiting everyone. Always fun to return that visit and see what you've been posting. I wish there were more hours in the day :)

I want to see these photos! Alas, my computer is having issues. No virus, just issues. I am looking into getting a new computer! I will come back then to see what I am missing!

Thank you so much, Denise for your comments on my "Another Reason for Remembering" post. Russell and I are so suited to each other, and I love him a lot!
