Ornithologists are a breed apart.  And ornithologists who are also wood carvers surely form a distinct sub-category.  In Tokyo, the “Bird Carver’s Club” exhibited its masterpieces at the Shinjuku-gyoen Garden.  And masterworks they were: from the right proportions to the distinctive details of each species, each piece was astonishingly life-like.  The hours of study, contemplation and handiwork that went into every little sculpture can only be guessed at and admired.
