Day Four For Cardinal Baby And Papa Makes First Visit

It’s day 4 and “Melvin” the baby Cardinal has really grown by leaps and bounds.  He’s got some very small wing tip feathers now.  Also for the first time, the father of “Melvin” dropped by to contribute to his feeding.  I’m not sure what the heck he brought, but whatever it was it was huge.  […]
