The Babies Have Arrived and Other Lunchtime Amusements

While eating my lunch, I noticed some activity outside my kitchen window.

Baby Cardinals just out of the nest were having a nice mud bath in my flower bed.

Dad was keeping a watchful eye on the kids.

As soon as Cardinal family left, this Green Anole hopped on the sill to do some bug hunting on my window.

Yup, I know that window needs to be cleaned, it always does.

All the photos were taken through the kitchen window.  I planted the bed with flowering plants that attract all kinds of backyard critters and there’s a feeder for Hummingbirds.  I am always entertained while I dine.

    Awe! Those babies are cute with their bright eyes,and I enjoy those little anoles that run around here even sometimes popping in the house to check us out.

    Lucky you, to have baby cardinals! I think they’re among the sweetest babies. I still have my fingers crossed, as mama and daddy cardinal have become faithful visitors to my balcony.

    I’ve been watching a pair of doves. Today, one showed up on the railing with a nice, long twig in its bill. I don’t know where the nest is, but I’ll keep an eye out for it.

    Your anole’s gorgeous. I really like them, but we have mostly the brown and black ones around here.

    Really nice shots of the cardinals. They’re so cute and I love to watch dads feed them after they’ve fledged.
