A digital illustration to visualise data using a pie chart of pigeon feathers, to demonstrate the average colour of pigeons observed over a year in Leicester. The work was part of a Citizen Science project at Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, to find out why pigeons exist in a variety of colours.
The bright red imagery was taken from an early stamp created for the Pigeon-Gram service on the Great Barrier Island (New Zealand), produced when the Pigeon Post service began between the island and Auckland in 1897.
