A Peacock Among Pigeons (2015), written by Tyler Curry and illustrated by Clarione Gutierrez, is about a peacock named Peter who is born into a kit of pigeons. He looks and acts different than the pigeons, so he just doesn’t fit in. The pigeons think everything about him is wrong!
Written and illustrated by Helga Bansch, Odd Bird Out is the story of a flamboyant raven named Robert. Bansch introduces a fabulously queer character who finds himself by leaving his repressive nest. Although not widely available, Bansch’s raucous picture book is worth the hunt!
