Omens about Winter
The crow is a wise bird - it takes care not to get too close to humans. According to the omen there will be hard frost and driving snow, if the crows seek to town.
If many eiders gather in the inlet, the winter will be severe.
The winter will become hard if the wren seeks to human homes.
If you see the herons standing along brooks and water streams inside the country at autumn and winter time the cold will be hard and the winter will draw out.
If the mice gather much corn the winter will be hard.
Finally a positive one:
If the swans migrate north in January , spring will arrive early.
Notice 22. January:
Much sun on that day is a sign of that winter will soon be over.
