IT'S A CRUEL WORLD OUT THERE
It has happened again. The nest is empty and it is not because the baby cardinals have fledged. This morning while we were eating breakfast we heard the angry sounds of a cardinal. I went outside to look. The bird was in the tree at the front and eventually flew off. This afternoon I went to take a photo and found the nest empty. Who stole the 3 little chicks-a snake, a scrub jay? Surely a snake couldn't eat all three. It must be the jays. I am so sad for the mother and father bird. This is not a good place for birds to raise a family.
