Oh how this made my day today! Walking along on the edge of the forest I became aware of a familiar little “tchik tchik tchik” coming from a nearby brush pile, a sound that never fails to put a smile on my face and that I hadn’t heard since early last Spring –my dear sweet friend Winter Wren! She didn’t break into her wondrous full song for me today but wonder of wonders she did sit still for a time letting me watch her quietly. Oh how I hope she’ll make this brush pile her home for the winter, bringing such joy to my days!
