Last year

was the first time a pair of tree swal­lows chose to nest in one of our hand­made boxes. We watched as both par­ents worked to­gether to build the nest and gather food for their three ba­bies. The adults took turns keep­ing guard on top of the box and hunt­ing for in­sects. They didn’t seem both­ered by our pres­ence and al­lowed us to get close while we weeded our nearby flower bed. Na­ture is beau­ti­ful, and this photo is a re­minder for us all. Tammy Hile­man CELINA, OHIO
