That's beautiful Tony! Thanks so much for the stained glass bird.

Tony, the stained glass window shines with color, almost luminescent. Lorena Perez Aros is one to keep an eye on. Thanks.

Here's something I found that's cool. A stained glass window by Chilean artist Lorena Perez Aros. Done in the cubist style. A Chucao bird.

Hoatzin (Opisthocomus hoazin) Hoatzin is a very peculiar, large, prehistoric-appearing bird of Amazonian rivers and lakes. An arboreal cow: feeds on leaves, which are digested in a specialized crop and foregut. Nest is a stick platform over water. Wings of nestlings have claws(lost later in life); drop into the water when threatened, then use the claws to climb back to nest...
As Mr. Spock would say, "fascinating".
