....and the winner IS...?


Cam, "my" cardinal whose familiar to many because of the success of her book, Words In Our Beak Volume One


can be seen in the image atop this entry, where she is in my urban garden, the setting for her book.

A copy of this  particular picture is included in her book, where she confesses facts about what truly makes her flap her wings! One of the confessions that Cam did not admit to is something I will share here — if you promise not to tell her — is this: she gets very excited about award ceremonies such as The Academy Awards, which will take place this evening.

Cam was featured (exclusively) in my first bird-themed mini movie, Words in my Beak, which can be viewed on Vimeo. Cam liked the title very much and modified it for her book, which is something that she did admit to doing in her note to the reader.

In any event, because The Oscars are tonight, I though I should give some recognition to those who have been featured in my movies; starting with the ones which are bird-themed. These include, in alphabetical order: Cam’s Wisdom: Time Flies, Enjoy Those Near and Dear to You While You Can;



Emily's Antics;



Harper’s Bizzarre Antics During GBBC 2015;



“Hollywood Finches” Honoring Bragging Rights;



Meet the Finches;



Preview for Words In Our Beak Volume One;


and, as mentioned earlier in this post; Words in my Beak. By the way you can read more about the birds included in the aforementioned movies, here on blogger, by clicking on the following links:

Baltimore oriole, Cardinals, House Finches and Northern mockingbird. Note that one of the images of house finches seen above (the seventh image) is included in my fauna-flora-insect-themed postcard collection.

Meanwhile, the second category within the movies which I've produced, and are also on Vimeo, are flora-themed movies, all set in my rooftop garden. These include the following (in alphabetical order):

A Week in the Lives of my Helichrysum bracteatum (Strawflowers);



Echinacea Elaborates Year in Review


The Kiwi Speaks! Fifteen Minutes of Fame … almost (FYC);



Tropaelum majus Honor of Matisse;



and 50+ Shades of GREEN.

By the way you can also read more about the flora included in the aforementioned movies, here on blogger, by clicking on the following links: EchinaceaHelichrysum bracteatum (Strawflowers, Kiwi Vines, and, Tropaelum majus (Nasturtium).

The third category of my mini movies features insects including The American Lady Butterfly,


seen in the image above, which is also included in my fauna-flora-insect-themed postcard series. The movie she stars in is called The American Lady Butterfly Comes to New York City. My other insect themed movie is about bees;


and is titled, Here’s the Buzz!

The fourth and final category in my movie collection includes ones that are tributes to various people and events. Alphabetically they include: A Trailer for Product and Venue PromotionsA Virtual Flip Book: Special Cards Designed and Produced by Patricia Youngquist; An Apple a DayCam and TLLG Thank Apple UWS!Gifts by Helen as told by The Pink PantherIt’s a Wrap! Bubble Wrap!John Montone (1010 WINS Radio) Interviews Patricia Youngquist!Miracle on 71st Street (Vow Renewal Full “Movie”); My Funny ValentinesOrigami Presentation for Friendship DayRADIO INTERVIEW TWO : THE AL LEWIS SHOW (WBAI);Remembering Donna (The Wonder of DD); and one which features roses called THANK YOU Ethel Merman!


The image above is not from the aforementioned movie, however it is included within my fauna-flora-insect-themed postcard collection. Additional movies included in my tributes to various people or events are: The Miracle on 71st Street (Vow Renewal Synopsis)The ResidentsThree Month AnniversaryTulipias Remember Tiny Tim;




a movie which included an array of tulips. The image of this flower type (posted directly above) is also is part of my fauna-flora-insect-themed postcard collection. And finally, the other movies that are a part of the tributes to various people and events category are: Warren Tangorra Moments in Time and, YOU LIKE ME, YOU LIKE ME!” 

The latter of these two is about an well-known Oscar Speech that was made by Sally Field. It seems which is very apropos to include it in this entry which is inspired by the Academy Awards! And that's it for now, dear reader, except to let you know that clickable links to a number of my movies that are mentioned here (including Words in my Beak, Meet the Finches, The Kiwi Speaks! Fifteen Minutes of Fame … almost (FYC), The American Lady Butterfly Comes to New York City, Here’s the Buzz!; and, THANK YOU Ethel Merman!; are included in the iBook version of Cam's book, Words In Our Beak Volume One, making the reading of that version an interactive experience.
