The baby cardinal is four days older than he was in the laurel tree. Still being cared for by both mom and dad, and has become much better at flying. Most of the time he sits and waits, looking into the sky. His mouth would open whenever something flew by, whether bird, butterfly or dragonfly.
This is an image sequence of still shots put to video. For the sound track, I used iphone's voice memos app to record the call of a male cardinal.
