New York, NY — November 1, 2018: Celebrate the Year of the Bird* one more time with Words In our Beak, Volume Three ! The WORDS IN OUR BEAK series is brought to a conclusion with the publication of Volume Three. Cam, the friendly and astute female cardinal narrator, picks up from the end of Volume Two and makes good on all her promises. First, she teaches us the how and why of winterizing an urban garden, and then she introduces us to the other bird types who have visited the urban garden that she calls home. In this final volume, Cam also touches upon the importance for birds to be camou¬flaged from predators and gossips with her avian cousins around the birdfeeders. Visit one last time with Cam as she chronicles the habits of her avian community, what it is like to spend time in this special urban garden, and why — for all the hazards to bird life and garden greenery — New York City is still the place to live.
