Baby Blue ...


 “May my heart always be open to little birds who are the secrets of living.”
                   ~ ee cummings
                         ~ 1894-1962             
A sweet tree swallow fledgling waits for its mother to return with supper to the nesting box on a beautiful late spring evening in early June at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

While there are young or eggs in the nest, adult tree swallows frequently dive bomb intruders, including curious humans, and attempt to drive them from the area – I personally know this to be true, and so does my camera!

Blues Singer ...


“The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing.”
           ~ Eric Berne
             ~1910 – 1970
        ~American psychiatrist & writer, best known as the creator of Transactional analysis, and as the author of “Games People Play: the Psychology of Human Relations” published in 1964
