So the babies are gone.
About three days ago I noticed the cardinals nest was empty. I don't think those babies grew up that fast, so I fear that one of our many chicken snakes may have been their demise. I have actually witnessed this one time with a pair of house wrens. It was gut wrenching to watch mom and dad try to get the snake out of the nest. Once again I fear the same played out here. C'est la vie.
