One of my most unusual sightings during the 2014 GBBC time period was of a female Baltimore oriole, who had first appeared in my garden in November of 2013, I wrote an entry here on Blogger about the circumstances re my discovering her and I included eight pictures of her, a copy of one of them is posted below:
I ultimately named her Emily. She made herself at home in my garden until March of 2014, which met that she was here during the time period of the 2014 GBBC. I made very detailed observations of her during that time and compiled my findings in photograph format, then put them in a slide show which is in my Vimeo Library as well as You Tube Library. It is titled "Emily's Antics" and is posted below:
The book is titled Words In Our Beak Volume One. It’s goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in my 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.
ADENMENDUM: As of March 2, 2018, Words In Our Beak Volume One, is no longer available in the digital options listed here. A new digital option should be available sometime in the near future. Updates will be made when this happens, please stay tuned.
