In Shakespeare’s Sonnet 73, he paints a stark metaphoric image of winter.
That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
Here in east-central Alabama, we are fortunate to be home to many feathered denizens of the winter landscape. This exhibition features twelve of John James Audubon’s prints from The Birds of America, including birds that inhabit our environs during the winter.
