Satan the Fowler.

Mediaeval Studies 21 (1959): 176-84.

Describes the "traditional Christian" symbolism that underlies the fowler/bird and winter/spring imagery in LGWP 125-39, identifying biblical roots, exegetical commentary, and literary examples that precede Chaucer, suggesting that the "alert medieval reader" may have been aware of the implications of Satanic danger and deliverance.
