A BIG welcome to the newest member of the Book Passage family, a little baby purple finch nesting in the green canvas awning outside the store (which overhangs our sunny patio area). This new bird resides in one of at least two nests we've noticed in the v-shaped space created by the canvas, which wraps around the awning's metal frame.
No word yet on a name, nor the baby bird's preference in reading material. Our children's section is just a few feet away. Same with the nature books and field guides.
