Cardinal Gives up on Hickory Horned Devil assault

Hi Edwin,
Thanks for supplying our website with this marvelous documentation.  Without birds, our planet would probably soon be defoliated since there are so many insects that feed upon plants.  This looks like a young cardinal and a more mature bird would probably not have given up so quickly.  The Hickory Horned Devil does not look like it weathered the attack very well.
