It wasn’t until I looked at this photo (as opposed to the bird in real life) that I realized he was posed to recall a bird in the margin of the Sherborne Missal, like the one below:

Bird in the Sherborne Missal

The amazing Sherborne Missal was made in England in the early fifteenth century; read all about it here. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of that page, you’ll find a line that takes you to a page where you can “turn” many pages in this book — and see more birds!
