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~

A Nibble, Some Flirting and A Song or Two~

The American Crow found something to nibble on.  I love how they find things that no one else can either see, or would even desire, and find flavor and favor in~


The American Robin below seemed almost gleeful as it hopped and flew to greet it's mate~

The nest of mud and grasses is now ready to be filled with those glorious little Robin's Egg Blue eggs ;)

 I sing because I am happy~

Mr. Red-winged Blackbird using his vocals and fanning of feathers to draw in the lady friends~


  1. are you sure those aren't 2 male robins fighting?! :) but i like the choice of nest locations in that sweet gum tree. :)

  2. The Crow, Robins and Blackbirds are happy wonderful bunch.

  3. Super photos of the American Robin and Red Winged Blackbird, thanks for sharing.

  4. Ya, I agree with TexWisGirl, I think those are two male Robins fighting. The females are much paler in comparison. At any rate, they are fabulous shots, and this is a great post!

  5. Hmmmm, I know the female Robins are paler than the males, but I witnessed some serious breeding going on too, so hmmmm~

  6. Super shots of the Red-winged Blackbirds mary - your pictures reminded me of their pose when they do that strident singing. That Robin nest looks dangerously exposed, to the weather and to predators so I hope it survives both risks.
