Esther Woolfson loves birds. Her family share their home with a rook, a magpie, a starling, a parrot and the inhabitants of an outdoor dovehouse. Corvus is her account of her passion. She told us about her unconventional life and shared stories of superstitions, evolution, and the amazingly rich world of birds although she was not able to bring any of her friends with her to the festival.
