The photographs atop this posting were taken by Joan Budilovsky who is visiting NYC for this Columbus Day holiday. She stopped by my rooftop garden (with her husband and their eleven year old son) yesterday to play a few games of Bird Bingo...*
... and so that I could autograph her copy of Words In Our Beak Volume Two.
Ms. Budilovsky owns both volumes one and two of my Words In Our Beak series (pictured below) and had this to say in her review (on Amazon) of volume one:
"If you are not yet a bird-lover, you will be after reading this book. Words in our Beak is so enchanting as it follows a little cardinal named, Cam, through the rooftops of NYC and beyond. Cam has so much to share from a bird's eye perspective, it was hard to put the book down. I became enveloped in Cam's world by imagining what it is like to live on a rooftop, choose the right flowers to eat, and listen to the world around in the most intimate, gentle and fascinating ways. Thank you, Cam! I hope to read ever more of your travels in the new year!"
She plans to purchase volume three...
... once my publisher fixes the errors they made. I look forward to her reviews of two as well as three and to playing more rounds of Bird Bingo when her family visits NYC.
