Day 657 Catching Snow

Daily Note
Every day, a photograph, a poem. In 2014 on our way to a family Christmas gathering over Highway 2, I loved the snow falling and gathering, captured by the trees outstretched branches. I have taken several “snow forest” pictures— lovely, calming, peaceful.

And the little sparrow, the junco, thrives in winter all across North America. A bobbing, always moving, ground feeder, it’s hard to keep up with their antics, so I’ve included two videos for you to learn from to enjoy them more when you find a flock bobbing and hopping in your own yard.

I love these little birds. Our cat becomes hyperactive when they are around and we keep her inside. She resorts to attacking her stuffed bear. We can’t let her out or she might capture one of these delightful creatures.

Catching Snow

Bobbing and turning
this way and that
Dark-eyed junco jumps
From branch to branch
On the ever green of forest trees
whose arms outstretch in winter’s freeze-
Flexing in the winds that blow
Holding strong for catching snow
Junco hops and dusts off the snow
A game is played: only two know –
the evergreen and little junco.

Perhaps you will find your variety in this video [if you live in North America]:
