Male Juvenile Cardinal
SmugMug Daily Link
I watched the father cardinal feed this male juvenile 'baby' for a few minutes while I was preparing dinner last night. I can always hear their distinctive chirp, chirp when they come to the feeder and birdbath. I missed the daddy putting the sunflower seed in the baby's mouth but was able to capture this pose of the baby on the birdbath.
Monday is back to school for the boys, and we've been school supply shopping! In our state and our county, we are asked if not required to buy quite a long and expensive list of supplies to send in with the kids. This is most of of the stuff for Johnny who is entering second grade. Although there are some variations from teacher to teacher and grade to grade, the bulk of the lists is the same featuring items both for the student's private use as well as some items for use by all the kids (i.e. plastic bags and baby wipes).
