The Lord God Bird

This personal drawing will be part of a group show at Fuse Gallery in NYC.

19th century southern farmers took to calling the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker the 'Lord God Bird' because of its unnerving majesty. Most serious bird people believe it has been extinct for 50 years. But, in 2005 a group of ornithologists made the claim they had seen one in Arkansas (the have a fuzzy inconclusive video to prove it). Despite throngs of amateur and professional bird-watchers canvassing the deep south, no such sightings have been made since. Skeptical experts doubt the bird sighting was legitimate and suspected a conspiracy. If indeed it was an actual sighting, some scientists have speculated that the single bird seen in 2005 was the very last Lord God Bird.

Oddly, he was last seen drawing a sword from the mouth of a fish.
