Worth a thousand words

Many thanks for printing the photo of baby swallows with the Home Forum page essay "Spring Flies In on Migrating Wings," March 19.

Year after year swallows raise their young in a nest atop a column just opposite my kitchen window. To watch this family being fed, trained, and eventually launched from under the porch ceiling is an experience not easily forgotten. That the swallows' parents put their "all" into the raising of their young is attested to and revealed in this fine photo. Edith C. Smith, Erwinna, Pa.
