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~

Cowbirds, Catbirds and Naked Ladies...Well Maybe Not~

Please tell me that this is indeed a Brown looks like a Brown Cowbird, it acted like a Brown Cowbird, it even sounded like a Brown Cowbird, so that is what I am calling it, unless someone tells me differently.  These lovely little brown birds with little flecked chest feathers, nearly all confuse me, but I am pretty sure about this, if not, just correct me, and I shall not feel shamed...much.  Now I am positive the I have also taken photographs of a Gray Catbird as well.  Now on to the Lilies...The dainty pink ones first...some people called them Surprise Lilies, and others call them Naked Lady Lilies...why that name, I have no clue.  I would like to give them my own name...possibly Ting's Lilies, since I have a nice large crop of them every year...yes, indeed, I like that  Ting's Lilies;)  The larger deep orange/red Lilies are in a garden path belonging to someone that I do not know, thus said, I am rather clueless on just about everything today, yet some days, just need to spin out this way, and I am perfectly fine with that. Everyone have a nice day/ evening, whatever the case may be in your part of the world~

  1. That adds up to them all, beautiful photos.

  2. All are beautiful pictures! Definitely a grey catbird. I don't see them very often here in Florida. The brown one looks like a cowbird. Could be a juvenile.
