Cam's Baaaaaaaaaacccccccck!

Patricia Youngquist uses words and images to tell stories about her passions. Based in New York, she currently is authoring a series of nature books on birds of the city. Now in Apple’s iBooks store @ https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/words-in-our-beak/id1010889086?mt=11

Yesterday (Sunday, April the 7th of 2013), was The Octave of Easter (also known as Divine Mercy Sunday), and while I'm not the most reverent, in honor of the day, I made an "alternative" Easter "basket" (seen in the photograph posted above) and gave it to a good friend. She had come to visit me and as we sat in my garden, I told her about the fact that Cam had gone missing (as I announced in yesterday's post here on Blogger). I informed her, as I informed  you, dear  reader, that I feared a hawk had swooped Cam away. And a few minutes later, my friend thought she got a glimpse of Cam in one of the trees that is located down the "courtyard" that separates buildings from one another! I did not see any evidence of Cam at the time my friend did.

However, this morning, in the very early hours, I heard Cam's famous voice, singing her "usual" song ("tick, tick, tick"), and I was thrilled and grateful to find her noshing in my urban (NYC) garden (as seen in the image below) near her favorite saucer,


Words In Our Beak’s goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a rooftop urban garden in New York City, my story is told in the voice of Cam, a female cardinal, who visits it. Words In Our Beak is directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective. The book includes hundreds of images of flora and fauna, links to movies, as well as to informative narratives that have been created by the author.

which I had filled with a treat — black sunflower seeds — and placed on the ledge which surrounds my terrace (roof extension) garden. It is the same ledge which Cam's beau paced and paced upon in search of her (as indicated in yesterday's blog entry).

Cam was being nonchalant for someone who had caused her beau such angst by her mysterious disappearance, and they had a discussion (argument) re the where-were-you-and-you-shoulda-phoned-me issue, as you can surmise from the images posted below.

But it seems that birds don't hold grudges the way that humans do, and after Cam and her beau aired their differences, they kissed and made up and participated in their mating ritual of feeding each other (as seen in the images below).

And with this info, I'll end for the day, dear reader, but not without a small request which is please continue to hold good thoughts that Cam, her beau and the entourage of other birds who visit my garden will be protected from the hawk!
