Birds with colorful plumage and intricate feathers aren’t enough for artist Karley Feaver. In her series Becoming Otherwise, she explores the concept of adding to already ornate creatures.  As a note, all of the birds were already dead and taxidermied. From the artist:

“I am interested in the scientific, intellectual and aesthetic reasons behind the re-creation of the animal. I am exploring how each one could exist in a domestic setting by adapting to their surroundings. Through this, my investigations of the animals have developed by morphing animals and other various objects into newly formed creations”.
