Day's End in the Wintertime Woods
Comments: 0 Comments •
On a calm, mild, late-winter's evening, pastel tones of the sunset sky filtered through the dense canopy of oak and walnut woods and thorny vines characteristic of the Cross Timbers. Located in the transition from eastern forests to Great Plains, these woods shelter numerous species of birds. Even with the somewhat reduced wintertime populations, this was a marvelous time for hearing them, with an overlap of the final calls of daytime songbirds and the early noises of nocturnal owls.
