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~

Adult Female Startled me~

It will happen once in a while when the nest is on a site that I am not so certain about that times will give me a start.  This day was one of those in that as I was taking my usual gentle stroll along the area near nest site, I must have stepped a foot past the acceptable boundaries. As I took the extra step, out of nowhere the female came swooping in with her broad wings and perched above me and gave me a glare from the nest as if to say...enough of that.  I had gifted her with yet another road kill snake and she was not even grateful, in fact she was in process of removing a previous meal that she had neither fed to the Eyas, or herself, hmm what was up with that~


  1. Beautiful pictures and post. I am in Birmingham right now, but heading home this afternoon. About the Lewis's woodpecker, I got several pictures of it and have some other interesting pictures I will post.

  2. Maybe she got a bit fed up with those ready meals Mary and fancied a bit of home cooking. You got some fine pictures though showing lots of detail.

  3. Ick for the snake, but the photos and story are great!
