CARDINAL IN TRAINING - When it leaves the nest, a young Northern Cardinal has a dark bill without any bright color. A few weeks later the dark color will have faded and the bill becomes bright orange-red like the adults. The dull feathers will be replaced by more adult-like feathers within a few weeks - which we will watch develop on the juvenile Cardinals coming to our bird feeders.
