It's been a mild December here, and the birds have been so song-ful. It must be their joy, when the weather is fine.
Here are a few tiny portraits of some of those who loiter in the yard or linger in the neighborhood. They are all characters-some more transparent than others. Miss Quail doesn't really live around here. But she insisted on a portrait in any case.
Sing out a little joy yourselves during this celebrating season. It's good to be alive! It's good to welcome the sun whenever it may shine!
Happy holidays all.
