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!

FOX SPARROW???

We've never seen this bird before.  We THINK it might be a fox sparrow; anyone know?  Sorry about the quality of the shot but it was taken through the window...

    p.s. I removed last post because I screwed up the link.

  4. Cher, thanks for the info. I will check it out. Out of two of our big bird books (and no I don't mean the Sesame St guy!) that is all we could come up with.
