New neighbors gone already

A few days ago I posted a picture of a nest of cardinals that was in the bushes next to our house. A few days ago one of the chicks left the nest, leaving its sibling alone.
 Yesterday that chick left, and the nest was empty.
 This afternoon I found one of them was still hanging around in our shrubbery. It does not look much like a cardinal, but even though it is small, it can fly a bit, from twig to twig.
These baby birds sure grow up fast.

I had never seen a nest of cardinals before.
