"I like how birds point their beaks straight up in the air when they drink, sort of like a wolf howling at the moon.”
Testimonial for Backyard Bird Feeding: AN ALBERTA GUIDE
Good morning Myrna,
I was very pleased to have a chance to meet you last weekend at your Wildbird General Store book launch. The book looks wonderful and is chock-full of great information. I’ll be giving copies away as Christmas gifts to my birding friends this year!
I showed my children the two photos of mine that were included – they recognized the birds right away, especially the Northern Flicker on the first page. My son commented “our bird is famous!” and said he likes how birds “point their beaks straight up in the air when they drink, sort of like a wolf howling at the moon.”
Thanks again for the opportunity to contribute photos to the book; you’re right that it sort of feels like a “family” photo album!
