In quatuor anni tempora.

The four seasons

EMBLEMA C.

Advenisse hiemem frigilla renuntiat ales:
Ad nos vere novo garrula hirundo redit.
Indicat aestatem sese expectare cucullus:
Autumno est tantm 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.
