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~

Day 27 and counting for hawk chicks to hatch~

The best of my calculations is that today is most probably day 27
of the hen brooding her eggs. My guess is going to be two chicks and
truly this would be a good thing, for the nest could hardly support three
and an adult landing for feeding time, once the young Eyas begin to grow. 
Incubation is 28 to 33 days~


  1. Oh, so you are a bird girl. You might enjoy Old Man Lincoln's blog. And yes, he is related to Abraham Lincoln. His wife is a Custer and she is related to Gen. Custer. You can visit his blog by going to my blog and clicking on his blog under my list of favorite blog sites.

    Where did you go to school in KY? I took library science courses at the University of Kentucky.

  2. It must be exciting and difficult waiting.

  3. We keep counting the days with you.

  4. How exciting! I have never watched this phenomenon! I loove to hear their little chirps!

  5. Very cool! Great sighting of the hawk nest. It must be neat to go back and watch them. Great photos!

  6. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and waiting for the good news. FAB.
