A young owl is not a cub! A nestling, if newborn, or a fledgling if older but not yet flying.

I love the smell of magnolia when in bloom. I sure didn't know they were so old & pollinated by beetles. Interesting little facts.

Any bird coming from an egg, and they all do is a chick. Hatched, not born as some would have us know.

Croissant = crescent were made in Vienna after the Turks failed Vienna siege (xv century?) the shape was a reminder of a different religion Christian had the cross Muslim the crescent. Uncultured Modern industries should not forget history and traditions.

Julie Domaille, Bees don't spread seeds and many plants are not pollinated by bees. Non-bee pollinators include flies, beetles, moths, butterflies, wasps, ants, birds, and bats, among others.
