On Wings of Cheer, by Sam Campbell, introduces Sam, the philosopher of the forest, to a friendly red-winged blackbird he names Cheer. Each chapter overflows with affection and joy.  Readers who loved Campbell's "Forest Life" series of nature books as children will be glad to know they are still available from A.B Publishing, Inc., of Ithaca, Mich.
