Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Maybe I can just blame it on the cold blast of frigid air~American Kestrel/ Sparrow Hawk

Maybe I can blame it on the cold blast of frigid air, rather than the world of technicalities, mechanics of computers that I still do not quite get. For the past few posts that I have managed to get on, there have been just as many that I have had to delete. For some reason, my narratives and images are all seen and then once I click publish and then go to blog, the images are not there at all. I am not certain why this has begun to happen, thus I shall blame it on the fact that I am not a cold nature person and we have just risen above freezing today after 12 straight days in the deep freeze. Thanks to all for your understanding. Better go ahead and try and place some images on this while I have a good page going~

The other day, my daughters and I had driven up north to Cincinnati, when I spotted a quick look-see of a Kestrel up on a wire at the very close of the day.  I managed to click two images, just before it flew away~


  1. Beautiful pictures of the Kestrel - some call it a sparrow hawk. Your pictures are so precise and sharp.

  2. I love seeing these little jewels too, especially as they hover in the wind in search of their personal interests.

  3. I agree that these glitches can be dammed annoying after you've spent so much time preparing a post.

    Smashing poses from your Am Kestrel. FAB.


I enjoy each visitor to "Red Shouldered Hawks of Tingsgrove and Beyond" I truly appreciate those who have become followers to my blog and really am encouraged by the wonderful comments.
FYI if you leave ANONYMOUS comments, they will never get published, so please don't waste your time.

Thanking you~
