The nature poem I'm bringing to you this week is in honor of the month of January. It is about a little chickadee. These birds love the winter months, and many times they are the only birds you can find in the cold. chickadees are some of the prettiest and friendliest little birds you  might ever see, and their cheerful little calls are every bit as good as their looks.

by Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882

Then piped a tiny voice hard by,
Gay and polite, a cheerful cry,
"Chick-a-dee-dee!" a saucy note
Out of sound heart and merry throat
As if it said, "Good day, good sir!
Fine afternoon, old passenger!
Happy to meet you in these places
Where January brings few faces."

    You can see them and many other animals you may not have right here.
