For The Birds

May 3, 2008 at 9:53 PMJeremy

Here are a couple of little birds that were living in a nest in our shrub (I photographed them over the course of a few days - click to see the progression): 

I knew when it was the last day I'd see them out there because when I went to get a picture, one of the birds took flight, but he didn't get terribly far:

I think this is mom and dad.  I don't really know birds, so I'm not sure which is which, but these are the two birds that got into a fit anytime I got close to the nest.

The bright red cardinal is the dad, the drab colored one is the mom.  That just ain't right....
but I do think it has something to do with preservation of the species with camo for the mom since she is the "carrier/giver of life"......
love, mom
