Is Winter for the Birds?

Well, it may not be for all birds, but we have some chipper little fellows that stay here all winter, and always bring a smile to my face.

I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn. ~Henry David Thoreau
