The title of this book is “Blue Honeycreepers” because of the bright blue coloring in the Red-legged and Yellow-legged Honeycreeper male birds. When I started writing this I was amazed at the lack of information about these really interesting birds. The internet had mostly rewritten information from the Honeycreeper Wikipedia page. So I set out to try and create not just a photo book, but a book that included some facts about the birds and commentary on their behavior.
The photos for this book were taken in a certified bird conservatory which means they might not be behaving the same that they do in the wild, however from what I have been able to learn from the various references I was able to find their behavior is pretty much the same.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed putting it together and as much as Vinny and I enjoyed photographing them.

This book has full color photos for Kindle apps and the Kindle Fire that support color display. The photos will also display very nicely in black and white.
Deborah Carney has been a freelance photographer for over 35 years, covering events, weddings and cat shows, in addition to macro and general nature photography. Her cat photographs were published by T.H.F. publications in two of their cat breed books, one about American Shorthairs and the other featuring the Sacred Cat of Burma.
Additionally, as a prolific photographer with an eye for details, she will be publishing a number of books that are photo based with information about the photographs in them. The ability for these photos to now be able to be enjoyed in color on eReaders and eReader apps has inspired her to create a multitude of books on a large variety of subjects.
Her favorite subjects to photograph are butterflies, hummingbirds and macro images of flowers, in addition to wildlife and nature of all kinds. There will be many series of books about nature in general and by species, and wildlife plus beautiful locations that she has photographed.
