part of the bird:wing series

Birds have appeared in mythology and literature as messengers, omens, wise beings and fragile connections to the heavens. Scientists collect the physical manifestations of birds, but others collect the sightings of these creatures. This on-going series is inspired by birds both real and imagined, and the human pursuit of both.
