      1. Dear Cindy,

        Once again, I admire your featuring my fellow raptors. Keep up the good work! Seeing your photos, some might even exclaim, “I Wish That I Were An Eagle!” For your photos here and elsewhere are indeed very inspiring and tap into our desire to soar freely above our earthly existence and daily grinds.

        Therefore, you are cordially invited to come and fly alongside SoundEagle in the following special post that can resonate with the (embodied, corporeal and/or transcendental) being and feeling of soaring like an eagle, whether symbolically, intellectually, aesthetically or spiritually:


        This said post has very recently been improved and expanded further. It is a very good example of cross-disciplinary fertilization and experimentation involving the following domains: Animation, Art, Creative Writing, Graphics, Meditation, Music, Music Animation, Musical Composition, Poetry, Psychology, Spirituality and Video. Please enjoy!

        Yours sincerely,

    1. Yes there was flooding and people trapped in cars. The Holler just sucks the rain up and the creek begins to roar! If we get ongoing rain, the creek with continue to cut a larger bend in the lower pasture แƒ“

  1. I was walking in New York City’s Central Park in 2005 and wondered what all the excitement was about. A hawk had made its nest on a nearby skyscraper. I was smug because a red-tail hawk flew over our Florida pool almost every day, and I never tired of seeing it on my walks or bike rides.

  2. Yayyy! Rain at last, everything will bloom again Cindy ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿฆ‹ ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿ•Š ๐ŸŽ„ ๐ŸŽ โ›„๏ธ

          1. It has reached a place where I can comment once in every 10 or 15 posts. I have commented on them all but alas I disappear into the internet neverlands. It isn’t just you, it is happening to many blogs I visit. Some I’ve been totally blocked, I’m probably too noisy or something ๐Ÿคฃ ๐Ÿ˜‚
            Have a Merry Christmas dear lady, may their be more gifts of rain in a thirsty land ๐Ÿ˜€ โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿฆ‹ ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿ•Š ๐ŸŽ„ ๐ŸŽ โ›„๏ธ

            1. It is so strange how these harmful WP issues disproportionately impact certain blogs. I would really like to find out why this is. I am so sorry you are experiencing this. I know first hand how frustrating and harmful this sort of ongoing experience is to your blog. I wish you and yours a Most Merry Christmas Mark and look forward to sharing 2022 virtually with you.
              PS- I am going to check my WP spam filter and see if any of your comments are there……

  3. That is the best news ever, Cindy! This may be the first soaking for some tender young fauna born during the drought. Can you imagine what their first experience of a cloud burst must have felt like? Instead of those dry dust baths birds have to take when there’s no water to be found, they can luxuriate in real puddles. How awesome that is.

  4. Yay, you got rain!! And that’s a terrific photo of a red-tailed hawk! Wishing you and your family a very blessed Christmas, Cindy! I love your picture-ful posts, and look forward to more in the New Year!

    1. Thank you more for appreciating the awesome hawks. They are so smart. They greet our car when we return from trips. They fly low down to our car as we drive down the driveway. I think they are incredible แƒ“

      1. My pleasure. I love hawks and delight when I see them in the wild. They are beautiful creatures that hold great symbolism for me. How wonderful that you are greeted by hawks! During the summer of 2020 we were in Flagstaff when we had the delight of seeing a red tail hawk in a tree. I took several pictures. I learned the next day, from the property owner, that the hawk was injured, and a wildlife rescue group came to pick it up. I pray it made a full recovery. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป The injury explained its odd behavior in the tree. Poor thing. I also learned, through her, that the hawk was a male and according to the rescue team, there was probably a female nearby who might stay close, since they mate for life. A beautiful nature love story. ๐Ÿ’•

    1. It is snowing a lot, both in our nearby mountains that we can see from The Holler, and in The Sierras which are getting a very healthy snowpack which provides water to the state in the spring, summer and fall แƒ“

  5. We have red tailed hawks here, but I have never seen under the wings up close. Thank you for the detail and beauty. What a gift you give to us, Cindy!
