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~

Claiming of Pure Contentment~

Some of the favorite winter visitors to our grove are the White-throated Sparrows.  They stay with us a few months and they are always such great little chaps to observe.  This tan-striped morph differs quite a bit from the white striped and this could also be a first winter adult as well.  I watched this little one preen and shake itself and then claim pure contentment afterwards~


  1. Quite a nice bird, great serie of images Mary!

  2. Beautiful your pictures.

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~
