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~

Not Very Often Do I Get This Close~

Wood Thrush are one of my favorite songbirds, but I do not get to see them very often.  They are quite lovely and they are also very good at hiding.  This one had no idea that I was this close until I had to shake some mosquitos from my legs and that ended the photo shoot.
While we have enjoyed being on our journey nearly two weeks now, it has not been all that easy keeping up with my blog friends/family, and I have missed that, though have done as much as I could when we had access.  One more full day on the road and we shall be home again, and I can hardly begin to share our travels with you~


  1. Beautiful bird and great shots Mary.
    Have a great week.

  2. Fantastic, congratulations! :-)

  3. Foto molto delicata in questa ripresa ravvicinata :)
    Bello l'uccello.
    Buona serata.

  4. I can surely understand this one is your favorite! Very pretty!! :) Have a safe journey home! Regards from Viola :)

  5. One of my favourite NA thrushes too Mary, like someone spattered a loaded paint brush onto them. Good to see you back from your trip and i look forward to seeing and hearing of your travels.


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~
