The southwest desert
welcomes all the snowbirds
other birds flying through.
Hail to thee, blithe spirit!
Bird thou never wert,
That from Heaven, or near it,
Pourest thy full heart
In profuse strains of unpremeditated art.

Percy Bysshe Shelley
To a Skylark.


  1. You probably get a lot of snowbirds there. Not so much where we are. But we have a lot of other birds. I try to feed them through the winter.

  2. When I lived in Tucson for two years...that was the first time I'd heard the word "snowbird." I always wondered at people who had enough money to live in two places over the course of a year. Can't even imagine it! Glad that others can do it though!
