Details

Named for its song — "WI-poor-WILL" — this shy bird's plumage makes it hard to see in its forest home. It hunts for insects at dawn and dusk, and at night when the moon is bright. Mauricio Morales depicts the bird in a ceramic sculpture and carefully paints it by hand before protecting the colors with a coat of wax. The realistic figurine stands on wire legs and the feet can be wrapped around a perch or branch.
