Tuesday's Truths WK 79: It's N'tl Siblings Day!


Welcome to my seventy-ninth "segment" of my Tuesday's Truths series. According to Holiday Insights, today is National Siblings Day, and they state: "National Sibling Day is a day to appreciate and cherish your brothers and sisters. Siblings are truly a special blessing that we probably all too often take for granted. They are often our best friends and supporters through life. Another reason to celebrate is that not everyone is lucky enough to have siblings. Their lives are significantly different growing up, and throughout  life."

But I confess that I think this holiday is for the birds, so I'm featuring them in this entry. Peanut, a young cardinal pictured above has three siblings named Frannie, Vincenzo, and Pica-John.

You might recognize Peanut because I have featured her in a prior entries here on Blogger, including one that was published two weeks ago.

Frannie and her brother, Vincenzo can be seen in the next set of images (respectively).



There are no photos of Pica-John because she hates to have her picture taken and since I feel the same way about having someone take my photo, I never push her to be in a photo.
 In any event, in volume one of Cam's book series (pictured below),


Cam discusses all of children. In volume two (seen in the next image),
Cam shares some photos that her daughter took which feature a family of Canadian Geese that she saw in nearby Central Park. Because the illustrate the gosling siblings spending time together, I'm honoring National Siblings Day by sharing Peanut's photos (directly below).














And there you have it, dear reader, a bird's eye view of gosling siblings to warm your heart on this National Siblings Day, but if you have siblings in your life, or know someone who acts like a sibling to you; you may want to get them a copy of Cam's book series.

ADDENDUM FALL 2018: 

The digital versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.

Additionally,  I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
