New tenant

We have a new tenant on our property.

While cleaning out some old plants in the garden this morning, I came across a bird's nest in one of our back bushes. The "tenant" is a Northern Cardinal and she's laid at least two eggs...maybe three. I glanced briefly at her nest, but she was letting me have it so I didn't want to upset her and have her abandon the nest.

I haven't come across last year's tenants: two small garden snakes that made their home next to our garage.
