The summer issue of Living Bird magazine is out! I did the graphics for some interesting stories ranging from loons and lead fishing tackle to the amazing migration of the Amur Falcon. Also a feature on keeping hope alive for the Hawaii Iiwi.
First shot is the conservation department article on the severely retracted range of the Iiwi and my map showing current range vs range in the 1800s.
Second, a map showing the migration route of the Amur Falcon from breeding grounds in eastern Asia to wintering grounds in southern Africa. They fly 2,400 miles and to fuel up for this journey they stop in Nagaland to eat trillions of termites that erupt from underground colonies.
