This is a quiet time in the woods for our bird population. All nested up or having flown to warmer climates it is rare to see many birds around.
But some flit by once in awhile. Because they are rarely seen they become even more precious to me.
A bird outlined in a deep blue winter sky, or sitting huddled on the branch of a tree. Definitely winter treasures to be sought. "Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that, so it goes on flying anyway". - Mary Kay Ash
