Another nest in the front yard, but which kind of bird!?

I’m turning into Michael Keaton day by day. Why? Because in 2014 he was Birdman and 7 years later the title has been bestowed on me. Ok, no one calls me that but I’ve given myself that nickname due to all the birds I’ve been obsessed with since the beginning of the year. I even bought a book about birds from an estate sale. A bird book. Birdman has a bird book. I always thought I would be Orlando Bloom or Jack Sparrow. Michael Keaton? Hmm. Whatever.

Anyway matey’s, the other day I was in the front yard, where this nest hosted 4 little birdies, when a female cardinal quickly flew off a high part of a bush near the front of my pirate ship house. I thought, “Arrrrrrr!!! That’s peculiar.” I peaked in the bush and sure enough, there was a nest! It was too high to see inside so later that day I got out a small ladder, like any good pirate would do, and this is what I found.

Awesome!! Speckled eggs, and a lot of them. I am very curious about how cardinal chicks look when they’re hatched so I will be sure to pass along any updates in the coming days and weeks.

Eggs be a’hatchin’, stay tuned for more. Thanks for docking your ship here today, ya scaliwag!
