Bird’s Nest

A pair of cardinals built a nest in the bubble gum blossoms of our Old Blush rose. Their castle is a pastel fortress. Dad sings from the top of a pecan tree, while mom incubates. Yesterday, a mockingbird made a run at her, and Red swooped to the rescue. The mockingbird is bigger than the cardinal, but Red has love on his side.
