Another reason to celebrate the Year of the Bird* has arrived! Words In Our Beak, Volume Two by Patricia Youngquist [ISBN: 978-0-9963785-3-6] is now available in a hardcover edition for order by booksellers from publisher Ingram Book Group ( and wherever books are sold.

The Words In Our Beak series continues with the publication of Volume Two. Picking up from where Volume One ended, Cam, the friendly and astute female cardinal narrator, ventures to the sea shore for a vacation with her children only to discover upon their return that her beloved urban garden is in a state of chaos!

Cam proceeds to relate how a series of major disruptions — structural renovations, major weather storms — bring change to that urban garden ecosystem she calls home and how those changes affect both the plantings that give it life and the birds who visit it. In this new volume, Cam continues to share her concerns about the plight of her avian community, her observations of what it is like to spend time in this urban garden, and why — for all the hazards of bird life — she still thinks New York City is the place to live.

Cam’s continuing story gives readers her unique perspective on how birds see humans while also informing readers about the joys and hardships of life in her winged world. For anyone even mildly interested in birds, this is a delightfully imaginative and heartwarming introduction to the feathered friends in our midst. The author— who Cam calls “TLLG” after Ms. Youngquist’s award–winning blog, The Last Leaf Gardener— includes over 250 stunning color photos.
