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~

Between the Red-bellied Woodpecker and the Mockingbird...grrrr~

Day before yesterday, I thought that I saw an old friend, the Yellow-shafted Flicker under our picnic table, grabbing a nibble of seed. Then yesterday, I happened to look out and it was back, having a little bit of the leftovers. It flew to a nearby tree, and was just resting a bit, when out of nowhere it seemed, came a Red-bellied Woodpecker and frightened the Flicker away...Between the Red-bellied-Woodpecker and the Mockingbird...grrrr~


  1. That's very interesting as I recall a flicker is a bit bigger than a sapsucker and might stand its ground. Nice photos. Phil

  2. Beautiful photos! Wonderful bird.I have never seen such birds :-)

  3. What a gorgeous post! This is a pretty bird, I've seen it on some blog and it looks magnificent, but with the snow around!! That's a plus and your pictures are stunning....

  4. Tell them there is plenty for all.
