Kissing Cardinals

I just saw the cutest  thing.  A lady cardinal landed in the bushes outside my office window, and started pecking dead bugs out of the windowframe.  Her mate landed next to her.  She did that beak-gaping thing that birds do when they want attention.  Then they started billing and kissing.  Awww ...!  I bet they are building a nest.  It's that time of year.
