My event at NYSEC is 3 Wks from today! (Monday's Memo)

You've surely heard of humans "swimming with dolphins...," dear reader! But I'm wondering if have you heard that there is a Muscovy duck who swims with Khaki Campbells?

This is evidenced by the pictures within this blog post featuring Jewel, a Muscovy who is spending her time swimming with the Campbells in the NYC's Hudson River, which she has been doing for many years!

This Muscovy has taught me a thing or two about myself which is part of what I will be discussing at my lecture for November 2018's Speaking of Science series at the New York Society for Ethical Culture (NYSEC) that is scheduled for three weeks from today (11-26-2018).

The info on the "photo-copy" of the flyer may be a bit hard to read on a computer, so I'm taking the liberty of copying and pasting it below:

Studying the wild birds in NYC and surrounding areas has important implications for understanding the similarities of human behavior and the behaviors of members within the avian community. The topics I will cover in my presentation include how birds teach us about the human race in such matters (to name a few) as finding our voice, ways in which we compensate our behaviors to meet our needs, accepting our physical appearances, and how bullying impacts our lives.

Patricia Youngquist is the author of the three volume “Words In Our Beak” book series, published by Ingram Spark, in which stories are told from the bird’s-eye perspective of Cam, a female cardinal that regularly visited her rooftop garden located near NYSEC and is illustrated with her own photographs. Prior to publishing this series, Youngquist published an article on Google Mapping for Contribute Magazine as well as over a thousand posts on her blog ( It has been listed (by feed_spot) in the top one hundred urban blogs. Her earlier impressionist and kaleidoscopic photography has been exhibited in NYC which led to radio interviews with John Montone’s New York for 1010 WINS and The AL Lewis Show with Karen Lewis for WBAI. All of her work, including these radio interviews, can be found on her website,
