We’ve been on a run of sunshine for a little over the week, and I’m taking full advantage of it. I’ve been out and about every day for a little over a week now. In fact, I’ve been out so much I haven’t had time to process photos and post them.

This shot of a Tree Swallow


is my favorite from last Saturday.

My favorite childhood song is “Zip a Dee Doo Dah,” particularly the line “Mr. Bluebird is on my shoulder.” Since I have never seen a Bluebird locally, these blue, male Tree Sparrows have taken their place. Nothing makes me happier than walking down the Theler boardwalk saying howdy to all the blue Tree Swallows sitting on the railing, knowing everything is satisfactual.
