The fat, ruby red cardinals are gobbling up every bit of seed we put in the feeders and a woodpecker is going at the back of the house (this is not good). Despite the incessant tapping, I love birds and cannot wait to see “Audubon’s Aviary: The Complete Flock”, a three part show at the New York Historical Society. The first installment runs March 8-May 19. All 474 watercolors John James Audubon painted for The Birds of America will be presented in the order they were created.
Soon to be on my bedside table is Snapper, Brian Kimberling’s debut novel about a bird-researcher in Indiana. Call me shallow, but I love the cover. The reviews are good too.
Vogue covered five made-in-New York City beauty businesses and I love the packaging on the Uptown Soap Co. products, especially the bird motifs. They are the perfect hostess gift.
