Patricia Youngquist's "Words in Our Beak" is a photographic delight! Ms. Youngquist captures the breathtaking beauty of the birds that make their homes on her Manhattan rooftop garden. Color and light are woven together to offer an intimate glimpse into their routines and activities. Infused with humor and charm, the accompanying prose, written from the perspective of a cardinal named Cam, captures the personalities of her dear winged friends. A book to read and savor!
