Happy Earth Day to you all....

This year, perhaps even more than others, we need to feel the connection to our Mother Earth.

Although there may be restrictions, try to take time today to actually feel the Earth.

If you can, go for a walk in nature.

Plant something to feel your hands in the living earth.

Do something to make a difference. Start a compost bin, pick up trash on your walk....

 

Take comfort in knowing we are all in the living Earths embrace, and she does care for all her residents.......

All of them.

Happy Earth Day!

Mother Earth has blessed us with a Cardinal family in a bush very close to the house.

 

The female is quite busy, sits on nest, goes to feed, goes and takes a long drink of water, rinse and repeat, all day.

I can't find a pic of the bird itself, but here's their nursery.

 

I look forward to watching, observing and defending this nest all pring and summer.

 

I'm very grateful for this blessing.

 

Caught the male today:

The date is wrong, obviously

I'll be watching for updates on the cardinal family as well.

 

I used to get curved-billed thrashers nesting in the cane cholla cactus and they were a treat. But when I adopted cats................they went away.

That's not uncommon when I arrive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Man, she and the male are elusive as fuck. I keep moving that trail cam around and keep snapping sparrows or the bush moving in the wind. I'm confident that I'll get some shots. I am of course very cautious, and I give the nest a wide berth, as not to disturb them.

I know someone posted this somewhere here.  I think it was TVC.  I just watched it and it is kind of an Earth Day retrospective, deserving of our attention, in my opinion.   It brings into question how we might get to have more Earth Days, and who exactly will own them.   It looks like the producers and director aren't looking to see what the box office proceeds will be, but decided to give it to us instead.

She is so safely hidden away in there. It looks like you have your trail cam adjusted for a good nest view now.

I am going to request a " nest cam" regularly when the eggs hatch and we have some more coming and going to feed the hungry little mouth's......................

Here's a better shot of the eggs. I saw the pair leave and go fairly far away, so I got closer.

Oh these weren't the trail cam, which has only 8 megapixels or whatever. The three of her were a point and shoot digital on a tripod, and the last shot of the eggs are from my phone.

 

May I continue to celebrate Earth Day on this thread all summer? I have a feeling I'll have a lot more shots. The nest is about 15' from where I sit and smoke cigarettes. It's literally right next to my grill that I used to pasteurize on.
