Musicologist Len Howard conducted an 11-year study of bird music from her cottage in the English countryside. She found that birds were individuals and their behaviour was variable and flexible. It wasn't an easy assignment. Moore had to photograph her from the bottom of the garden using a 300 mm telephoto lens, as she insisted his presence would disturb the birds.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
