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~

Going to be a Difficult Challenge~

One very kind blogger was looking forward as well as others of my capturing one of the adults feeding the young one now that it has fledged.  That is going to be a difficult challenge, yet I shall do my best, as I am able.  The acreage is fenced off by property owners and I can only go so far on some of this land, or not at all.  I will post a few images that show a little of the depth of the tree coverage also that I am dealing with along with much Poison Ivy paths.  The other day, I managed to find the young one just as the hen was delivering food.  She no longer feeds the young one, as it has been taking food delivered for a couple of weeks now, and eating on it's own.  I was all but under the chick when the hen arrived and had to stay still and it was also an early rainy morning, so the images are not very striking~

* Note: in one image the adult female is on limb and the young one had just reached the meal she brought, and you can see it through the leaves~


  1. Great captures Mary.
    Thanks for the updates.

  2. Great images despite the challenges!


I love and 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. I also enjoy leaving comments and would like to ask that you please make your blog word verification free! You still have top security settings and you still have control over the comments published. It would make it so much easier, if you would consider doing this. I switched several months ago and am thrilled with the results.
FYI if you leave ANONYMOUS comments, they will never get published, so please don't waste your time~
