Here's another truth for the thirty-eighth week of my Tuesday's Truths series. It has to do with the author, Mo Williams and pigeons. I’m familiar with Mo Williams’s book series re pigeons because of my sister.
This past summer when visiting me in NYC, she took me to see an exhibit based on Mo Williams’s works. The exhibition was featured at The NY Historical Society from March 18th, 2016 until September 25th, 2016.
And the image atop this entry is from a review of Williams’s book, The Pigeon Needs a Bath. Mo Williams, the exhibition, and my sister’s visit, all came to my mind today when I witnessed a pigeon enjoying a bath in my rooftop garden; as evidenced in the following pictures.
This bird type classified as a pigeon is introduced in the book, Words In Our Beak Volume One, which I helped Cam (a female cardinal) write). The book is available in digital (iBooks and ePub) as well as soft-cover format.
In any event, during our story, we introduced the pigeon when discussing how blessed it is to be a bird in NYC for many reasons; one of them being a bird rehab facility known as The Wild Bird Fund (WBF).
The WBF happens to be near to where I live and I have brought birds to be treated there, beginning with a pigeon that Richard K Bloom helped me rescue a few years ago.
Rest assured, Cam and I will go into more detail re this bird type in subsequent volumes of Words In Our Beak, in the interim, we are continually entertained by the antics of pigeons.
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.
