The male cardinal
For the past few days, I have been watching 2 juvenile cardinals learn how to feed. When I first saw them, the Dad or Mom got birdseed and put it in the juvenile's mouths. Now, the juveniles are learning how to eat by themselves. There is a female and a male. The female has a larger mohawk and the male has more red on its body. 2 days ago, I watched the male juvenile eating at the feeder by itself. Yesterday, I watched both birds feeding on the ground right by a chipmunk and a dove. The Dad watched close by. It was amazing to see. The birds will now be able to feed with Mom or Dad close by.
