About Me

My photo
A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!

WHAT IS THIS LITTLE BIRD??

This weekend is the start of the WHITEFISH POINT BIRD OBSERVATORY SPRING FLING! It runs Friday and Saturday. I can’t tell you much about it because we have never attended. Actually that IS all I can tell you about it.

But with that in mind, I do have some bird photos to share with you. These photos were taken downstate at my sister’s, not too far from Three Rivers. The bird was busy constructing a nest. My sister, who also enjoys watching birds when she can, cannot identify this little bird either. I’m hoping maybe one of you might be able to tell us what it is.

It fits several descriptions of various birds that we found in the National Geographic North America bird book, but we cannot narrow it down. Please feel free to post a comment or email to me at northcountrycampground@gmail.com.

Thanks!

  4. It looks so far like a snow bunting. If you can hear it sing, too...go to this fantastic website. Type in the name of the bird and hit the line that says you can hear any bird's sound too...I use it all the time. It is at: http://www.allaboutbirds.org

    It is the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
    A fantastic site!

    I agree with ES, it is an Eastern Phoebe. Phoebes are part of the flycatcher family and they can be difficult to ID. I also have a pair building a nest in an out building. They are fun to have around, always busy and cheerful.

  6. ES and Anonymous, DAN thought that might be what it is, and stood with the book in his hand comparing it to the bird, so he was VERY pleased to know that he was right! Thanks for the assist!!

  7. Retired One, thanks for checking. We have snow buntings all winter long here so are familiar with them. But, it was a good try!!
