Sparky’s Way to Start a Day

We are upright, vertical, and ambulatory this morning – a good way to start any day. Sparky-The-Cardinal woke me up with a long string of “purty-purty-purties”, then proceeded to say: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.

Sparky Says it’s Spring

Sparky, our cardinal-rescued-from-a-shrike, was singing his head off outside the window at first light this morning. He keeps saying it’s spring! (Or that it’s just around the corner.) A look at the landscape and thermometer says he’s overly optimistic – but I

Sparky the optimist

Sparky, the spunky cardinal whom I rescued from a shrike and brought indoors for a weekend – and who has never forgiven me – is in the tree tops this blustery morning singing his Spring Song! Not chipping, but actually singing “What? What? What? What cheer, cheer, ch

Sabbath in the Woods

It is Sabbath in the woods this morning, and our little Church In The Pines stands as it always does to welcome its congregation. The pines reach for the sky and the oaks and basswoods spread their mighty limbs, arching over the sanctuary. Pinnacled church-steeple firs add a tradition

Winter Traps the Mercury – Seeds Build the Choir

The mercury is trapped in the lower end of the Pine Point thermometer this morning. But all is calm and bright, and the redpolls have found us in our winter woods and are having a grand time decimating the seed supply. They enliven the scene in general with their red caps and breasts,

Frosted Morning

Unbelievably beautiful in the Pine Point woods this morning. Every tiniest twig and needle frosted with last night’s light mist and brief snowfall. The morning sunlight reflecting and glittering from tree to tree, twig to twig. Chickadees, siskins, finches, jays, and crows are i

Sunday Brunch after Sabbath in the Woods

In spite of the blowing snow, the Sunday Morning Brunch-Social continues, the congregation being particularly hungry this morning (for seeds and suet as well as spiritual fulfillment.) Cardinals, jays, nuthatches, brown creepers, siskins, finches, red and gray squirrels, red-bellied,
