Tiburtius’s Day (St.)

.

April 14th. The cuckoo sings from St. Tiburtius’s Day (April 14th) to St. John’s Day (June 24th).

This most certainly is not correct, as I have heard the cuckoo even in August; but without doubt July is the month of its migration generally.

The proverb says:


“July, prepares to fly; August, go he must.”

⁂ It is said that he migrates to Egypt.
