|MY BOOK SERIES|
They are directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective.
Cam, the aforementioned cardinal, along with her husband Mac, also the inspiration for two of my jigsaw puzzles and they are available in two sizes (500 pieces and 1,000 pieces) via Fine Art America (FAA).
Two of the puzzles in my collection, A View From The Tree Tops and Cardinal Love 3, are based on cardinals who have spent time in my roof extension gardnen and/or my building's courtyard. These products can be seen within the next sequnce of pictures.
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. And the image used for my Cardinal Love Three puzzle is featured on one of my face-masks.
Addditionally, FAA has also rendered my cardinal-themed images, Cardinal Love 3, on to a note-card.
FAA also has the capacity to render this picture on to an array of surfaces for wall art.These surfaces include acrylic...
... for varying sizes of wall art.
Northern cardinals seem to show how much they care for their spouse by feeding each other as evidenced in my cardinal themed image titled Cardinal Love 2.
This can as seen in the image directly below, which has been rendered on to a greeting card and is available via my shop that's located on Fine Art America's site.
FAA can also print this image on an array of surfaces for wall art, including acrylic...
...special art paper...
...as well as wood...
... for varying sizes of wall art. FAA also offers this selection in a frame as evidenced directly below.
I'll conclude this posting with the next set of photos which feature works of art that are based based on my image Cardinal Love 1, and they show cardinals listening to each other.
As you can see, the colors of the female (left) are muted giving them a protective camouflage. Deep red coloring in the males of this bird type indicates they are healthy and might make good partners and fathers to their children.
Perhaps this is what is on the mind of this female cardinal during her conversation with a potential mate that took place from atop a railing which surrounds my rooftop garden.
Whatever the case may be in this scenario, Cardinal Love1 when rendered on to a card makes a perfect salutation for the one near and dear to you.
This card is also available via Fine Art America . They can also render this selection on to an array of surfaces for wall art, including acrylic......canvas...
...special art paper...
...as well as wood...
Additionaly they also offer framed images of Cardinal Love 1.

Bird Day 2021 (Tuesday's Truths WK 214)
Yesterday shortly after Juan V (JV) left from working with me in my garden, I had a visitor who happened to be a male Northern cardinal.
This incident was most welcome after having made my place more beautiful with yesterday's plantings. In any event the handsome creature is featured in the sequence of images atop this entry which serve as a play-by play to his discovering peanuts I had placed in a small petri-dish-style bird feeder, that hangs in close proximity to my lush pair of kiwi vines.
One of these vines is the narrator of my garden-themed movie, The Kiwi Speaks! Fifteen Minutes of Fame...almost, which can be viewed on my You Tube channel and/or my Vimeo channel.
In this mini movie, the vine talks about what it is like to live within my rooftop garden which is located on the Upper Westside of Manhattan.
A few years after this kiwi vine experienced nearly fifteen minutes of fame by talking about my place, a wildbird, known as a female cardinal named Cam, also expirenced fame by narrating a three volume book series about my place.
Her books can be seen in the next picture.
All of the cardinal-themed "merchandise" mentioned here makes for a perfect Mother's Day gift and that holiday will be here this coming Sunday, May 9th 2021.
Meanwhile, this posting is my 214th segement of my Tuesday's Truths series and is coinciding with Bird Day.
The following passage offers the truth re this particular holiday:
Charles Almanzo Babcock, Oil City, Pennsylvania Superintendent of Schools, established the first Bird Day in 1894. It was also the first holiday in the United States dedicated to the celebration of birds. Babcock founded the day, observed annually on May 4th, to advance bird conservation as a moral value.
It is from a web-page for National Day Calendar and you can read more about the specifics re this holiday by clicking here.
For me, Bird Day is every day, but it's great to have special days set aside to raise awareness about our avian community.
