The first time we ran into Oscar's birds we were completely struck by their attitude. These birds that we usually see as completely harmless suddenly became somewhat frightening, even aggressiv. Where they going to war? Who were they fighting?

Then, we got the other side of the story... The armor was to protect the birds from us. We are the predators, not the harmless birds. This got us thinking and Jonathan Safran Foer's book "Eating Animals" made us again ponder what we really are up to.

Regardless of what you feel about the food industry, Oscar's birds are both gorgeous and thrilling!
