October will begin this Monday so it's probably not too early to get your Halloween
cards to send to those near and dear to you. My card, House Finches Trick or Treating
(seen in the image atop this entry), can be purchased via Fine Art America
For your information, dear reader, it also makes a great invitation if you will be entertaining on Halloween. I personally think it should be called A Jack-O-Lantern Birding,
but these male house finches
who visited my rooftop garden
would only sign a release for me to use their photo if I put their name in the title!
But my Jack-O-Lantern didn't mind, he gets such pleasure out of seeing these birds that letting them have their say in the card's title was a small price for the joy these creatures bring to him.
Besides, the Jack-O-Lantern
is featured in volume two of my Words In Our Beak
...and he did ask that I let you know he can be found on page forty-five of that book as evidenced below.
This particular volume includes the impact (positive and negative) certain Halloween decor can have on the well being of members of the avian community ...
... and it might make a nice treat to give (in honor of Halloween) to anyone who has birds visiting their yard,
FALL 2018 ADDENDUM:
Hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can be found wherever books are sold.
Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books. Additionally, I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
ADDENDUM SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER 2021:
When the third volume of the hard-cover version of Words In Our Beak was released, I withdrew from promoting my former versions of Words In Our Beak.
The very first one is an iBook and went into Apple's book store in 2015.
This was followed by an ePub version...
..that is available on Amazon and was also published in 2015.
Its press release can be read by clicking here. [The press release does note my Kindle version of the digital Words In Our Beak, but I withdrew it from Amazon a few years ago and at this time, I do not intend to make it live again.]
... I've been advised to make mention of my early versions of volume one of Words In Our Beak, they do vary ever so slightly in content from the hard-cover version of volume one.
As of this addendum, I do not intend to create digital or soft-cover versions of Words In Our Beak Volume Two or Words In Our Beak Volume Three.
