The Winter Solstice is the First Day of Spring

So I wrote for my December chapter in Birdsong by the Seasons. I walked the streets near my home during both December and January, discovering that the birds knew the days were getting longer. On the solstice itself, I heard a grand birdsong party, with chickadees and nuthatches and titmice and robins and more all proclaiming the arrival of spring.

Yes, the days are getting longer, and I’m excited to hear birdsong returning along with the sun.
