I've mentioned this before, but its worth repeating. In the book series, Words In Our Beak (pictured below), the narrator, Cam, who is a prolific female cardinal, has a term for the activity of birds watching people, she calls this, "people-ing."
The birds featured in her published stories are mostly ones whom she has met when spending her time in my rooftop garden, not the ones who frequent Central Park.
However, in Volume Two, she does include a story about Canadian Geese and their goslings who enjoy the bodies of water in the park. Moreover, after Cam finishes volume three (scheduled to be published this fall), she may "spread her wings" and tell stories of birds who frequent NYC's parks.
In any event, I will tell you a bit more about the Gray Catbird in this blog post. The following photographs feature him/her who looks to be comfortable being in the arms of a Kwanzan Tree.
Additionally, this little bird also took advantage of the lush pink carpet this tree provides when she drops her petals.
That's it for today, dear reader, but before I leave this post, let me refer you to webpages published by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology. They have some great information on the Gray Catbird. To access the information, please click here.
