Nest Building

Nest Building

Jane Ingram Allen is building a big nest for the “For the Birds” public art project in the Commons at Point Reyes Station, CA. The nest is made with willow branches and other vegetation gathered in the Point Reyes area. People will be able to go inside this nest, and it will be decorated with handmade paper feathers created by participants. The feathers will have seeds to feed the birds in the paper pulp. Willow bark is also one of the materials used to make the paper for this project. The project is sponsored by Gallery Route One and Lucid Art Foundation.

Taken at a nearby festival. This festival had displays of animals including this macaw. I found the layering of feathers to be visually more interesting than the whole bird.
