Winter Plumage

January is feather weather in these parts.

Nature at her most innovative and clever...

insulation, transportation, courtship and camouflage.


so simple,

so sublime.

From Chapel Hill to Mattamuskeet and back home to Sanford, 

January wears winter plumage.

Whether it's winter number one, 

or you've weathered a good many more;

perched neath skies of brightest blue, 

or foraging in beads of glittering cold,

our feathered friends beg us pause

to consider

the glorious gift that is winter...

And a splendid gift it is, 

wrapped in winter plumage.
