Earth Day 2021

Earl and Mooch (from Patrick McDonnell's Mutts comic strip) as well as the prolific Mehmet Murat İldan sre spot on, for indeed "Wherever there are birds, there is hope."

For as discouraged as I might feel from time to time, whenever I see birds (such as the ones featured in the next sequence of photographs) in nearby Central Park, I feel more hopeful about most circumstances.

I also feel more hopeful about most circumstances when avian creatures spend time in the courtyard trees.

The following image shows a pigeon preening while atop a branch of one of the many Ailanthus Trees, which grows there.

Moreover, my hopes are always lifted when birds visit my garden.

It is my hope that just as the birds give me hope, my book series, Words In Our Beak, which includes all the bird types featured here (with the exception of the Wood duck) as well as many other avian creatures will give readers hope too.

This is a photo of my three volume book series, "Words In Our Beak." Information re the books is another one of my blog  posts @

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.
