So, I’m in Chicago this week, kickin’ it with the Swirleys and baby Ellis, the Notorious R.O.Y. (so fat, so jolly), and working on tying up some loose ends on my latest Birdcage Press freelance work before heading over the deep blue sea for the winter.
We are currently in production for Birds of North America and Backyard Birds book/game combinations. Thus, my brain has been spinning with Amazing! Bird! Facts!
What’s that you say? You want to hear a few? Okay then…
-Did you know that hummingbirds actively gather spiderweb silk which they use in their nest-building?
-Or that crazy crested kingfishers nest by digging horizontal tunnels into riverbanks?
-And that one of the loon’s closest relatives is the penguin?!
-And that you can tell individual blue jays apart by looking at their unique black face, head, and throat markings?
-Or that herons nest in trees, and if chicks feel threatened, they vomit over the side of the nest giving predators something to think about?
These games won’t be available until next spring, but in the meantime, you can get your geeky cuddle on with the just-released… Baby Animals around the world.
I said baby and animal in the same sentence, so you know it is going to be good.
