"I heard a bird sing

In the dark of December

A magical thing

And sweet to remember.

 

'We are nearer to Spring

Than we were in September,'

I heard a bird sing

In the dark of December."

- Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing

 

And the snow continues ...for at least another week so the forecast says... The birds are hungry in this cold weather and the feeder outside is busy - they are forming ques on the fence and in the trees:-) Less shy now than they were earlier i nthe year - this little blue tit was quite brave to let me take shots of him while waiting his turn at the feeder.
