There was a moment yesterday when things that live upon this part of the Earth decided that the season had changed. Robins stood their ground and stared at each other, which is a sure sign they've decided their time to flock is coming to an end and that perhaps being in a flock isn't quite as much fun as they thought it would be. The Cheeseburger Bird was in full throat, it's rather alarming noise and he seemed to be everywhere.
A Boy Crow, it must have been, was flying around with a big twig in his beak and
he was following after two other Crows, who must have been Girl Crows. They
weren't that impressed, because there's still snow on the ground and it's a well
known fact that Girl Crows find it a little embarrassing being followed around
by a Boy Crow with a big twig in his beak. Snowdrops are considering bloom. Then
we all heard the Turkey's forecast for freezing drizzle.
