Celestial Clues

Watercolour on paper. 17 x 18 cm, 2023

This drawing is part of a series called “Feathers”, about migratory birds. Terrestrial bird migration is due to a response to environmental cues in order to achieve their survival objective. Sun, geomagnetic field, and celestial indications are used to guide navigation.
