“For these hunters, the ritual is far more important that the prize,” explains Christensen. “Bonking the bird is not in the thing; the technique of the hunt is. Each of these bird hunters is a “master” of technique, whether he’s disguised as another bird, a pear tree, a rock, a fungus-covered log or a butterfly. Whoever has the best costume, more than who gets the bird, wins.”
“That accounts for only five bird hunters, though. What about the sixth? Is it the fish? “No,” says Christensen, stone-faced. “That’s a decoy. Still can’t find the sixth bird hunter. That’s because he’s very, very good,” says Christensen.
