Babies on the way

We discovered a cardinal nest in the camelia bushes just outside the lanai. I took this picture from inside the screen so it's a bit fuzzy.
I went outside to take this picture.
I spooked the mom and she flew to the dogwood tree and scolded me loudly. I quickly took this picture and went inside. She came back in a few minutes and settled right back in. No worries.

What a beautiful sight! We have loads of cardinals here in Chicago, but I've never spotted a nest. We get a lot of robin's nesting. They scream everytime we enter the garden in nesting season. They think they own the property.
