Down the hatch! Nice picture by Richard Hess.

As I add some personal experiences of the joys of fledging bluebirds and other birds we love so much, I hope you’ll enjoy one of my favorite Tchaikovsky’s favorite pieces from Sleeping Beauty’s Ballet, Op. 66. This is called “The Spell”, from Act I –beautifully played by the London Symphony Orchestra.  Enjoy!   Truly bluebirds have me under a spell year after year–and year-round, not just during the nesting season!
