In the aforementioned post, I also discussed how much Northern mockingbirds enjoy the berries too, and I love it when any bird enjoys my provisions, but at this time, I've gotten a lot of pleasure of observing a young robin discovering blueberries, which is something you might understand upon seeing the little one indulging in blueberries in my garden (first image above and the picture below).
It's hard to know if the robin identifies me or associates me with the one who is providing the berries, but he/she does seem to be doing some people-ing at a very young age.
Readers of Cam's (a female cardinal whose an author) book, "Words In Our Beak Volume One," (pictured below) will probably recall that the term, "people-ing," was invented by Cam as a way to describe the activity of birds watching people.
But getting back to my providing berries for birds, I must say that my avian friends provide me with much more!
|WORDS IN OUR BEAK BOOK SERIES|
...whose stories are told from the point of view of Cam, a female cardinal, whose photo is on the cover of each book. Words In Our Beak’s goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in my rooftop urban garden in New York City. 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 books include hundreds of images of flora and fauna, links to movies, as well as to informative narratives that have been created by the author.
