For a few years, we've watched the birds at our back yard feeder. We saw a cardinal couple raise a baby last year and once again this year, they have a baby tagging along with them to the feeder.
I've read that the male feeds the female when they're courting, but I've seen them both feeding the baby, coaxing it up to the feeder.
Here's the daddy at the feeder:
Here are the mother and child:
And this is the squirrel who lurks in the background. He desperately wants to eat, but when he gets on it, his weight pulls the sides down and covers the openings. I see him every day, staring at the feeder as if he's trying to figure out how to get to the seeds. Then he'll shake his tail in frustration and leave!
This squirrel-proof feeder has been a good investment!
