Our Summer Nature Lesson

We had a cardinal decide to take up residence in our handing basket outside the kitchen window. Over the course of several weeks we got to watch her build her nest, lay her egg, sit on her egg and then nurture her new baby. All with the help of her husband cardinal. He was quite doting. The kids were fascinated.


Mama sitting on her egg


Baby bird ready for food


Mama on high alert


She got out of the nest and it looking at the world, or at least in our widow


And the last time we saw her. She went out into the big world and didn’t look back.

Bet your kids learned a lot by watching the bird.
