January—–It’s for the Birds!

cheery nuthatch is a frequent visitor in January (copyright booksandbuttons)

How can January be the least bit dreary when we have cheerful
feathered company right outside the window at the bird feeder?

“Be Like the Bird”    by Victor Hugo

Be like the bird, who
Halting in his flight
On limb too slight
Feels it give way beneath him,
Yet sings
Knowing he hath wings.”

Chinese proverb: “If I keep a green bough in my heart, the
singing bird will come.”
