Juvenile Northern Cardinals

The dozen or so juvenile Northern Cardinals are growing and maturing.  Although there are still a couple of fledglings that are being fed by their parents, the juveniles feed themselves at our bird feeders. 

I've observed that they're quite sassy with others at the feeders...
like a group of children fighting over a few pieces of candy.

It seems they watch and wait for fresh bird seed- each time I put fresh seed out,
they all suddenly appear, within just a few minutes.

Silly birds...they're so often entertaining.

I hope everyone has a great start to this new week!


  1. aren't they just cute, awkward teens!

  2. Brilliant captures Susan!:) I like all of your photos as each shows something different about these entertaining birds.

  3. Well they certainly provided you with some interesting poses.

  4. Young ones are always entertaining!!!...:)JP

  5. love your images. It is life in them. Birds not just sitting. Beautiful photography. :)

  6. They have that slightly deranged teenage look to them - I like it!
