This Morning Outside

The woods are changing fast now. Leaves are leaving. Lichen is becoming visible on bare branches. Winter is coming.

The tiny black-capped chickadee is ready. This is a bird that doesn't mind the cold of even an Iowa December. I'm looking forward to enjoying the company of chickadees all winter. They bring heart to the season.

If you don't have black-capped chickadees in your area, you probably have some other species of chickadee. They're found throughout the northern hemisphere and Africa.
