war of the oscines

The War of the Oscines uses songbirds and other fauna as metaphors for Nature in conflict with human industrial residue, and political language to explore the cost of mass production on the natural world. 'Oscines' is Latin for the suborder of songbirds and originally means, ’to give omens by its cry'.
