December Already


This winter wren paused just long enough for one photo. It was foraging for insects among the fallen leaves. Winter wrens are common but often go unnoticed. They are tiny -- only about four inches long and weigh less than half an ounce. They sometimes are mistaken for mice as they scurry out of sight under bushes. In North America, winter wrens breed in northern Canada and then move south into most of the United States to spend the winter. Click to enlarge.

This bird sighting made me wonder how December managed to sneak up on me again. 

As Dr. Suess put it: 

How did it get so late so soon? 

It's night before it's afternoon.

December is here before it's June. 

My goodness how the time has flewn

How did it get so late so soon?
