Throw Back Thursday: #NationalPeanutDay


Today is National Peanut Day (hence the web-image atop this post). It is a holiday that I discussed in a prior post (published in 2016) making it "eligible" for a Throw Back Thursday entry. You may reference that posting by clicking here, and as I stated there, and reiterate today, #NationalPeanutDay is for the birds for they celebrate no matter what the day or the weather!

At least that's what the members of the avian community who visit my rooftop garden seem to think, as evidenced by certain ones (I'm not naming names) availing themselves of this legume from bird feeders (particularly my wreath-style one) in my place, as evidenced in the pictures posted directly below.













My visiting fauna are also known to munch on peanuts from my canister style bird feeder as seen in the next set of images.





In fact, Cam, the female cardinal who offers her perspective (within the three volume book series,* Words In Our Beak) on what its like to be a female cardinal living in NYC appreciates this legume so much, she named one of her daughters, Peanut.

Cam can be seen in the following photo where she is standing (along with a female house finch) atop my canister style whole peanut feeder. Directly below that picture are two images of her husband, Mac, enjoying peanuts from this feeder and following those photographs, he can be seen in images where he is bonding with his daughter Peanut as they gather together at my canister feeder.







Peanut can also be seen by herself at a different one of my feeders, where as you can see, she has grown into a lovely young girl.


Not only is this little one lovely, but she is also prolific, in addition to being a good photographer! It's no wonder that her mother Cam insisted we include her contributions within volumes two and volumes three (she was briefly introduced in volume one when she was born), of the Words In Our Beak book series, where you can read about all the birds (and many more) whose pictures are included within this entry.



Volume three should be available wherever books are sold.

FALL 2018 ADDENDUM: 

 Hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now 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.
