Phainopepla in Olivia Brophie & the Sky Island
If you are curious what the Faino Pepla cyborg birds in the Sky Island look like, look no further than a real phainopepla. Just like their evil twins, phainopepla birds love to sit on high branches above the shrubs and keep watch across the desert foothills surrounding sky islands. My father took this photo south of Tucson. He was a great bird photographer!
