Caption: Not only were these baby cardinals gasping from the heat, but I was horrified to discover ants attacking them. They were helpless to throw them off, so I did what I could, sprayed insecticide on the stems of the bush and sprinkled a little Sevin dust on the birds themselves, which is harmless to warm-blooded animals and is the main ingredient in flea powder. Later, I checked again and they seemed more comfortable; I didn't see any more ants. Hope I did the right thing.
