Ben Bahan’s allegorical fable, Bird of a Different Feather, explores the experience of a different looking bird within a family of eagles. Rather than accepting the bird’s difference, the eagle family tries to apply a pathological approach to raising the unusual bird. It is an odyssey familiar to many deaf people.
