The lone baby cardinal in the nest is growing by leaps and bounds. I’ve named the little mite Teensy and watch everyday as Dad and Mom take such good care of their pride and joy. Unfortunately, Teensy’s sibling is no longer in the nest; I don’t know if predators got it, if it fell out, if it just died from weakness, or what. I don’t want to go and look inside the nest as Teensy is very sensitive and fearful at this stage. Teensy is a little over a week old. This is a very precarious time for Teensy; I’m hoping and praying all will go well with this tiny bird’s life as only about one-third of nestings end successfully.
