The Song of a Bird Makes Me Happy

As I finish up this series of posts featuring images of songbirds, including Heather Von St. James' piece For My Baby, and The Mockingbird by Mary Oliver, here are just a few more images that captivated me.  You may also enjoy a post from my Grateful series or the essay by former military pilot Tara Nolan.

I knew I wouldn't discover happiness in a faraway place or in unusual circumstances; it was right here, right now— as in the haunting play “The Blue Bird,” where two children spend a year searching the world for the Blue Bird of Happiness, only to find it waiting for them when they finally return home. — Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project.


Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly. — Langston Hughes


 P.S. It just occurred to me that this may be one of the reasons I chirp so much about Twitter.

Any favorite aviary images you would like to share?
