And then they were gone...almost


This morning I came out to find only this little guy left. 

His siblings have left the nest and are no where to be found.  They will continue to live on
the ground until their wings grow fully in.  The male cardinal will take over the feeding
and caring of the babies while the female goes off to build her next nest.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments about the babies. 
I'm glad you've enjoyed watching them grow each day as much as I have.

Safe flight, little guy.

This was a wonderful lesson, Monica. I'm sure happy you could capture all of it on camera and share it with us.

They grow up so fast! It was fun following their brief stay in the next.

This was a great thing to watch! The poor thing looks a little lost, don't you think... empty nest syndrome..:-)) ??
And that on Mother's Day (well, it is here in The Netherlands)
