Year of The Rooster ~ 2017

The Chinese New Year begins in China on January 28th, on the first New Moon of 2017. Here in the western hemisphere, we still have the 27th. China is celebrating the Year of the Rooster. There are twelve zodiacs. Each zodiac is for approximately one year. Therefore a zodiac repeats itself every twelve years. Next time we have a Rooster year will be in 2029.

Happy Chinese New Year!

I had a lot of feathered friends visiting my yard at this morning. A house finch, a junco, a mockingbird, several house sparrows and white-winged doves came over for breakfast, today.
