Cardinal Hatching Egg

Remember our new neighbor I introduced you to last week?

Well Mama Cardinal finished shaking her tail feathers and building her nest, and is now growing her family!

Check out this little video that I cannot believe we captured:

And look what is in the nest now!

Houston – We have Eggs.  Cardinal Eggs.

And an Early Bird Bird’s Eye View from our bedroom window.  Can you believe it?!

So it looks like our sweet new neighbor’s family is growing…

And I hope to keep you updated.  Can you imagine how wonderful it would be to capture some video or photos of the little hatched baby cardinals as they fledge?!

Oh the anticipation!  Stay tuned.

And speaking of birds, I must share with you a beautifully-created artistic piece by one of my blogger friends, Jill from Jill’s Art Journal.

Jill and some others have made a pact and commitment to draw/create/paint and then post a new bird every day for a year.

And WOW, you wouldn’t believe how fun and exciting she makes it!

I fell instantly and totally in love with one of her drawings – a whimsical bird named Curly.

And  I shamelessly begged to have it.

Jill was so very kind to oblige and send her to me!  So all the way from the other side of the U.S. from Spokane, WA, Curly arrived this weekend in her full glory!  Could you just die how cute she is?!?!  Somehow, I feel she is a portrait of me.  🙂   Don’t ask me why?!

And not only did Jill send me the adorable Curly, but she put a sweet note in the package and added this beautiful handmade bookmark that featured a bird on one side….

… and a “Home Sweet Home” sentiment on the other side that Jill said she thought was just perfect for me!  How sweet is that?!?!

Thank you so much, Jill!  I am beyond thrilled and grateful.

And peeps, I so encourage you to check out her blog:  Jill’s Art Journal.  You will so enjoy her daily postings and her wildly creative talent!

So I’ll be on cardinal nest watch “in between” everything else going on around here.

Hope you are having as much fun…. at life in between.  🙂

Cheers & Hugs,

Jodi

    • LOL! I can guarantee I wasn’t that quiet, Lynn! 🙂 I am trying not to bug Mamma – she is sitting on her little eggs. Hope I get to capture some more excitement in the coming days. Oh the signs of being over 50, when these things thrill ya – eh? Not a bad thing I say! 🙂

      • LOL…no I don’t think I was that quiet either!

        Perhaps as we age, our definition of thrilling evolves to include bird watching. Regardless, mother nature has provided you with a front row seat to a beautiful sight to behold. I would classify that as a chance of a lifetime!

  2. Great post. I loved the video. You must have a lot of song birds in your yard. I enjoyed hearing all that bird chatter. Jill and I are both taking the same course together and we follow each other’s blogs. I haven’t joined in on the bird challenge but I have started drawing birds as well and am really enjoying the process. My goal is to paint several birds but I haven’t got past the sketching phase.
