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~

These Were Taken End of Week 6 for Young Eyas~




The young one is growing rapidly as it is fed very well, being alone on nest.  In fact, this is the first year of observing them several years now, where I have never heard the young one yelling and begging for a meal.  The only sound that it makes, is when the meal is delivered and it is so soft, one must listen carefully, all of that shall soon change.  It is left alone on the nest more now and the hen only visits to bring in the meals, sometimes parceling it out between she and her chick, or sometimes simply dropping it off, for the young one to deal with on it's own. If the male delievers the meal to the nest, instead of to the hen, the chick hunkers down, and seems to know that this is not it's main care giver, though he certainly is a champion at caring for his mate and young one~
