Ruffling Feathers

Words In Our Beak’s goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a 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.  Now in Apple’s iBooks store @

According to Garden Quotation's web page, someone once said, "The man who doesn't relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then, is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head for the edification of the pathologist and trained nurse, a little later on."

So, in light of this "breaking news," I plan to take Labor Day off today in order to return to Robert Moses beach for a hike to the lighthouse, and I'm even going to remember to take the battery to my camera this time in the event I can grab a few photo-ops.

I might ruffle some feathers by taking a few hours off, but the house finch (seen here) who visits my urban garden assures me ruffling feathers is not such a bad thing — especially if it "saves" you from "hooting to trained nurses and pathologists!"
