a bird describes its forest

the bird lives in a small conifer plantation that is being transformed to a mixed species, permanent forest

foresters have created light gaps and the new tiny forest of mixed species is beginning to grow amongst the shelter of the conifers - monoculture tree plantations can be transformed to vibrant healthy forests if we follow nature's own dynamics

artist filmmaker Cathy Fitzgerald's work is informed by her conversations with leading international foresters who promote new close-to-nature continuous cover permanent forestry www.prosilvaeurope.ning.com

her small 2 acre 25 yr old woodland 'hollywood' is the smallest close-to-nature continuous cover forest in ireland

initial thoughts about this work -  it quietly references and is narrated by a bird’s song that threads through the piece. As a result a more non-human perspective of a forest is given and the information about how the forest transforms itself is presented in a less didactic, more visually/aurally poetic way.

The idea came from a previous sketch 'forest description in 60 sec', where I had been using a high powered rifle mic to capture birdsong in the forest… and i realised i could use how birds describe their territory as a metaphor for telling us about the forest and its transformation -  wonder if it subtle enough?
