I went for a hike after work today and planned to use my macro lens for the first time this spring. Things didn’t work out as planned, so I switched the lens hoping to photograph some birds. Along the trail I heard a bird chirping in the lower branches of the underbrush. As I looked closer, I saw this little beauty. He/she continued to chirp, but didn’t move. I’m not sure, but I think this may be a cardinal. I have never seen a baby cardinal, but there were two cardinals frantically chirping very close by. What do you think; is it a cardinal?
