It's begining to look a lot like Halloween...

his image features an array of pumpkins in the window of a supermarket. Some have faces painted on them. Others  are just plain ol' pumpkins.

Today, October 26th, is National Pumpkin Day, and in spite of the fact that the morale of many people is at a low due to consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, many are making an effort to carry on and do things to lift their spirits. 

One of the ways this is evidenced is by the fact that people are painting faces on certain pumpkins (presumably in honor of the upcoming Halloween holiday) which can be seen in the photo atop this entry.

Others (at least in the area where I live) are decorating the outside of their homes.A few eamples can be seen in the next sequence of pictures and it is a nice way to bring a smile to anyone passing by.

I appreciate their apperance, but decor that involves netting can be very dertemential (and even deadly) to wildbirds which is something that is discussed in volume two of my book series, Words In Our Beak

The stories in these books are set in my garden and told from the perspective of Cam, a female cardinal who has been a regular visitor. Her picture is featured on the cover of all three books. One of the stories she recounts in volume two has to do with Halloween decor's impact on wildbirds.

The 2020 Halloween holiday is less than one week away and due to safety precautions, to prevent the spread of the pandemmic, tradional celebrations and activities have been curtailed or completly cancelled. 

A very safe (and informative too) way to celebrate is to read Cam's Halloween story. 

Words In Our Beak can be ordered wherever books are sold.
