Juvenile Cardinal

 How exciting!  Today we have a juvenile cardinal visiting in Bird Alley.  This is the first ever sighting of a juvenile cardinal!  I take this visit to mean that the adult pair of Cardinals we had  seen frequently in Bird Alley over the winter was a breeding pair!
The photo above shows highlighted reds due to photo editing.  The first photo showing more sudued colours is closer to the cokours on the bird that we had actually seen.
