This Morning Outside

A juvenile cardinal was begging from his father on the stone walk this morning.
Although the baby's red feathers are starting to come in, he still has a stone-colored beak. It will be red like his father's when he matures.
The father is still feeding the baby, although the baby looks as if he could pick up a sunflower seed all by himself.
I haven't been seeing the female very much lately. Maybe she's sitting on another batch of eggs somewhere.
