Bird of Christmas


    (... ...)
    The bird of dawning singeth all night long;
    And then, they say, no spirit
    dare stir abroad;
    The nights are wholesome;
    then no planets strike,
    No fairy takes, nor witch hath
    power to charm,
    So hallow'd and so gracious is that time.

  William Shakespeare
(Act One, Scene One)


Note: The title of the extract is "Bird of Dawning" / In the photograph, there is a goldcrest (Regulus regulus) or the "king of the birds" as it's called in European folklore; it was taken by archaeologist, bird-watcher and photographer Kiki Birtacha // Have the best of Times!
