Coffee, Birds and Mosaics!
Hello again Bird & Wild coffee lovers, you may remember back in February I was mosaicing the beautiful Peruvian game bird Sira Curassow.
Although helped by Bird & Wild’s brilliant Forest Farm initiative, it remains one of 31 critically endangered birds in South America so I hope to promote awareness through this mosaic which is finally complete!
