The month of March arrived the other day and whether this month comes in like a lion or a lamb, it will always be known here in The United States as National Peanut Month
Peanuts are a legume appreciated by members of the wildlife community including squirrels who over the course of many years, have stopped by my garden on countless occasions to eat them. This is evienced in the picture directly below.
Peanuts are also enjoyed by members of the wild bird community. In fact they are so popular with Northern cardinals, that my visiting cardinal Cam and her husband Mac, named one of their daughters,“Peanut,” in honor of this taste treat. These three cardinals can be seen (respectively) in the next sequence of photographs.
The stories of this cardinal couple along with the stories of an array of bird types are featured in my three volume hardcover book series, Words In Our Beak.
The books make a perfect gift for someone who may be in quarantine or lockdown due to consequences of the coronavirus
because the stories in them can bring the outdoors into the homes of those who cannot go out and about.
Reading is such an amazing activity to do when you have to stay home but some find it enjoyable to do a jigsaw puzzle
so I've designed a dozen of them and they are available in two sizes (500 pieces and 1,000 pieces) via Fine Art America
Two of the puzzles in my collection, A View From The Tree Tops and Cardinal Love 3, are based on my visiting cardinals. They can be seen within the next two pictures respectively.
The image used for my A View From The Tree Tops puzzle is included in volume one of my book series, Words In Our Beak.
However, when you do go out and about, the wearing of face-masks
is mandated in most places and I have also designed a cardinal-themed one (that features Cam and Mac).
But getting back to birds who have enjoyed peanuts while spending time at my place, a slection of photo-ops of them doing this can be seen below...
both adult and young enjoy peanuts too as seen in the next set of images.
Moreover when jays are courting, they will feed each other peanuts. I have images of this which have been rendered (by FAA) on to jigsaw puzzles (in two sizes 500 pieces and 1,00 pieces).
Images of jays enjoying peanuts rendred on to note-cards FAA). They can be seen in below.
By the way, FAA can also render the images on to an array of surfaces; including acrylic...
...special art paper...
...as well as wood...
... for varying sizes of wall art.
Moreover they also offer framed images of my collection.
This concludes my posting for day three of National Peanut Month 2021.
