winter '07

first snow fall in moscow today!!!

Little chickadees,
as busy as bees,
flying back and forth
from the feeder to the trees.
One sunflower seed
he takes to the tree;
Eats it there; flies right back
Such a cheerful fellow
and not a bit shy;
He doesn’t mind if I’m there
he'll come so close by
”Chick-a-dee-dee-dee” -
my favourite winter song;
could spend time
watching him all day long
A tidy little fellow -
no seeds scattered ‘round;
His winter manners keep the seedup,
off the ground.
When seeds in the feeder
start getting low,
- He’ll always let me know.
A polite little friend
I’m happy to see;
He has great winter manners -
I think you’ll agree.
