Red Gallery – Northern Cardinal

The eggs are whitish or pale green, blue, or faintly brown, with darker purple, gray, or brown splotches concentrated at the larger end. One pair of birds may raise 2-4 broods annually of 3-4 eggs each. Eggs are incubated by the female for 12-14 days, though the male may spend brief periods of time incubating as well. The young hatchlings are nearly naked at first but mature quickly and will leave the nest in  9-12 days.

  1. Oh how I enjoyed the Red Gallery today, HJ, as always. I like the first one for the angle she is perched at; the third one for the glorious wing shot; and the other two for the wild celebration of bright red. Wonderful, thank you.
