I photographed this cardinal nest right outside my bedroom window during the month of April, 2012. Lots of drama as one egg never hatched, the nest was raided with one of the two 3 day olds taken and the other dropped into a bush. Thankfully I found the dropped one near the nest and placed him back in the nest. He was still warm and had no apparent injuries. This nest was about one foot from my window and I had to shoot through a double paned window, so the photos are not as sharp as I'd have liked, but at least you can follow along as this one little survivor was raised to fledgling. Whew, am I glad this nest is empty now as I was a nervous wreck watching all the drama this nest provided!
