"Beneath this snowy mantle cold
The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings the song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring"
Lyrics by Gene MacLellan
Music Artist Anne Murray
Hearty souls these birds that
stay and resist the call of the southern warmer climates. Good thing it is,
too, as their presence brightens the dark and dreary days of Winter.
Cardinals, Bluejays, Towhees, Redbellied Woodpeckers, Whitethroated Sparrows,
a Titmouse or two and
even furry friends brave the new snow in this snowbird montage
