Steadfast Through the Seasons

Austin, Texas

Often the birds who get the most street cred are the ones who make the impossibly long migrations, yearly expeditions across thousands of miles, stretches of land rendered somehow familiar by instinct, experience, or something even less explicable. But let's not forget to give thanks to those avians, stubborn if not brave, who pick a home and stick with it, through frosty winter and boiling summer. Let's be glad that, at least in Texas we can hear the mockingbirds sing through the winter and even on the one icy morning we can watch their ballet through the branches. Assuming they're not pecking our heads off for getting too close to their nest.
