Bluebird In Dixie ...


“Be like the bluebird who never is blue, for he knows from his upbringing what singing can do!”

Winter's Bluebird ...



“The bluebird carries the sky on its back.”
               ~ Henry David Thoreau
                         ~ 1817-1862
A beautiful male Eastern Bluebird enjoys a rare warm February day along the Delaware and Lehigh Heritage Corridor (D&L Trail) at Lehigh Gap.
  
In the shadow of the Kittatinny Ridge, also called Blue Mountain, the Lehigh Gap in Slatington, Pennsylvania, is a crossroads where the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s trails connect two historic trails – the Appalachian Trail and the D&L Trail. 

The Appalachian Trail, a foot path, follows the ridge on both sides of the Lehigh Gap, running 1,245 miles south to Georgia and 930 miles north to Maine. Running from Wilkes-Barre to Bristol, the D&L Trail passes through the Lehigh and Delaware rivers and their canals in Pennsylvania.
