I don't know if you can call that a "bug", exactly, but it probably shouldn't be the case?

Will it also be possible to see through the branches of full-grown birches during winter time?

Not likely to happen any time soon. At the moment the code doesn't support dynamically defining if this or that tile is blocking line of sight. Each tile type is given that property statically, once and for all. Changing that would require a bigger overhaul of the underlying system. And it would quickly grow complex - birches block less late in the autumn when all the leaves are gone, but might be blocking more again if the winter pours down a lot of snow, turning birches into big snowy heaps.
