The four seasons

Emblema 99.

Advenisse hiemem frigilla renunciat ales:
Ad nos vere novo garrula hirundo redit.
Indicat aestatem sese expectare cucullus:
Autumno est tantum cernere ficedulas.

The chaffinch is the bird that announces winter has come. When spring is new, the twittering swallow returns to us. The cuckoo lets us know that it sees summer on the way. Only in autumn can one see flycatchers.
