Fourth Day of Christmas - True Love Gift
On the Fourth Day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me:
Four calling birds,
Three French Hens,
Two Turtle Doves,
And a Partridge in a Pear tree.
"Quat' canards volant en l'air" - Four ducks flying in the air."
Four Colley birds,
|Common Black Bird - Traditional fourth Day of Christmas Gift|
Growing up a stone's throw from water just about anywhere here in the beautiful City of Kawartha Lakes, we were treated to the trills of a different black bird - the red-winged blackbird. This is one thing I truly missed whenever I had to live somewhere else. To me, nothing else signalled spring quite like the trill of a red winged Blackbird in the marsh. Let me see if I can find a recoding for you and post it here.
