I know I’ve been gone a long time, but I thought those of you who are still following my blog might enjoy this little fellow.
Spring is here — or so they tell us — but there is still snow on the ground, and more predicted for next week.
Which is OK — I do love the snow.
But I also love to hear the birds singing in spring. And they’ve been singing like mad, lately.
I was going to post a bird poem for you today, but instead
here’s a link to the chickadee’s song. It sounds just like springtime to me — enjoy!
NOTE — you’re probably going to want to turn the volume down on your computer for this — it’s quite piercing.
BTW, in case you’re wondering, “Why black and white? Isn’t spring all about color?” I have posted a black and white picture for Scott Thomas’s latest assignment, which I learned about from the amazingly talented Giid.
And chickadees are black and white by nature, so it was relatively easy to “de-colorize” him!
Just for fun — and because I so seldom do black and white, and it can be so perfect sometimes. This is called “They also faced the sea,” from the installation of the same name, a tribute to the Portuguese women of Provincetown. Enjoy!
