Flying North

1″ diameter, found objects

In the fall I’m always very aware of the birds flying south.  The trees go quiet, and sometimes I can look up and see the birds flying away to somewhere warmer, while I watch jealously from chilly New England.  But in the spring the birds seem to creep back and just magically appear. Do they fly north all at once? Do they hide in their nests until the weather is just too beautiful to stay hidden any longer?  This pendant might be hard to read, but if you look carefully, you’ll see a bird’s head facing north and its wings spreading back on either side.
