Curator of Birds...

A friend of mine is looking for a California Condor feather as part of her spiritual quest. She knows I've done some work for the LA Zoo and asked me to investigate where one might be acquired. So, I'm waiting to hear back from the Curator of Birds, and honestly, I can't stop thinking what an incredible job title that is... As a job, I'd probably prefer Curator of Large and Dangerous Mammals, but as a job title, it really doesn't pack the same poetry as Curator of Birds, does it? By the way, it's illegal to sell Condor feathers in the US, so don't even try.
