The author, Harper Lee, known mostly for her novel, "To Kill A Mockingbird," died five years ago today (2-19-2016). In honor of her memory I'm sharing three photo-ops (atop this posting) of a Northern mockingbird who hung out with a Mourning dove in my garden during yesterday's snowstorm.
My garden and both of these bird types are featured in my three volume hardcover book series, Words In Our Beak.
|MY BOOK SERIES|
The goal of these books is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a rooftop urban garden (mine) 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.
I can only hope they provide insight into the avian community as Harper Lee's novel shed a spot light on injustice within the Black comunity. And with that thought, I'll leave you with two more pictures of a Mocker and a Mourner.
