This past Thursday, September 5th, in NYC, public schools reopenned. I'm certainly glad those years are over for me as a student but I do hope to pick up presentation gigs at area schools. I'm certainly not on the fence about doing that!
Speaking of being on the fence, it seems the male cardinal in this series of pictures (below) while being on the fence physically was not on the fence about his disdain of having his picture taken.
I'm not on the fence about that either, I loathe being photographed.
As you most likely know, dear reader, cardinals are featured in my book series, Words In Our Beak.
Nothing on the fence re the content of these books! Their goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a rooftop urban garden in New York City, my story is told in the voice of Cam, a female cardinal, who visits it. 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 book includes hundreds of images of flora and fauna, links to movies, as well as to informative narratives that have been created by the author.
