Feb. 15, 2008
We had a really horrible storm... first about 8 inches of snow, then several inches of rain.. and everything was totally coated in ice. Actually, it still is - the trees are all covered. Our driveway is a skating rink.
I watched the birds at the feeder, and, incredibly, after this awful weather, I heard the chickadee's song - not the call (chick-a-dee-dee-dee) but the two-note song (DEE dee) That's the male's mating call. It gives me hope that spring maybe is really on its way.. not real soon, but it's coming!
So, in the midst of the frozen branches, here 's a little chickadee, content and thinking about spring.
