Do you know this bird?

Update: This bird is Vermilion Flycatcher!

Evening, Owens Lake, California - Albert Bierstadt

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add colour to my sunset sky. - Rabindranath Tagore

Identify the bird. If you get it right, I shall know my drawing is alright :)) This picture was taken with my mobile. Will soon scan and upload it again - sorry botched the wings :(

Roses and love

Finally I have an internet connection and am back to the city where I live. I hope to post more often and take up drawing too. Here is a beautiful painting and wonderful quotes. 

How did the rose ever open its petals and give to this world all of its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light on its being, otherwise we all remain too frightened.
– Hafez

Chen Hongshou, Leaf Album Painting

We're supposed to love one another and we're supposed to work together to make the experience better.
That's all the religion you need, really, to make a success of this planet...
