This bird art by Johan Scherft looks like it should belong in a zoo. Each craft is made with meticulous and intricate detail to suggest they have feathers and a pulse.
In actuality, each form of this bird art is made from paper and paint. If you look closely, you'll be able to detect seams and folds that run throughout the birds. Considering the mediums chosen to portray these specimens, they turned out impressively realistic.
The birds are actually available for download at his website and also feature linked YouTube tutorials. In other words, Johan has given everyone the ability to create their own wonderful avian creature that is enough to fool onlookers of its true existence.
