I am guessing that these tiny chicks are cardinals because after viewing the nest I turned back to the bird trying to get my attention and saw a flurry of red. I followed it until I could get a better view. Yes a male cardinal. I am so pleased. They are my favorites. They seem a bit shy at the bird feeder, the chickadees are always the first ones. And we have several finches (I think) that are bossy and aggressive. And the Tufted tit mouse (if its birds do we still say 'mice' for plural?) that I also enjoy are frequent visitors. The cardinal seems the last to visit, the first to decide things are too busy or too noisy or too whatever.
