Puzzle Birds


There are 2 bird outlines here, along with their mirror images, making 4 apparently different bird shapes, each sort having its own wing-feather color. In this arrangement you see them tiling in the orderly periodic way that the Ghosts of "Ghosts and Owls" display. But actually they can tile the plane in an infinite number of different ways. Chaotically. Patchily. Interestingly.
