Crazy Cardinals

We have lots of cardinals in our yard. The other day, I could see six at one time. Right now, the immatures are getting their new red feathers and losing their baby gray ones. Like children, they grow and develop at their own pace. So now, they are conspicuously in different stages.

The poor guy below is really pretty comical. His head looks bald.

The pictures are taken through the window glass, so they are not as sharp as I would like, but you get the idea.

We've got a few babies in our yard too. Elizabeth said the other day that they looked tie dyed. :)
