A Pants Rack Is A Dining Spot For Jays In The Know

Patricia Youngquist uses words and images to tell stories about her passions. Based in New York, she currently is authoring a series of nature books on birds of the city. Now in Apple’s iBooks store @

A blue jay enjoyed a peanut from atop a new perching place in my urban (NYC) garden, a re-purposed bamboo pants rack!

Info @

Just a heads up: many antics of the bluejay bird type will be featured in Words In Our Beak, Volume Two, the sequel to Words In Our Beak, Volume One, which is written in the voice of a female cardinal and is available in Apple's iBooks' Store @ 

As you may know, the goal of the series, Words In Our Beakis to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a rooftop urban garden in New York City, the stories are 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.


The non-hardcover version (or 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.
