Because I'm a massive geek who also loves birds.

Screenshots of birds from the game Life Is Strange, compared to their real-life counterparts. All of these birds are native to Oregon, which is where the game is set.

The photo of the Shadow Sparrow is my own, all others were found via Google Images and Wikimedia Commons.

EDIT: Fixed a typo.

How incredible, they actually went through the trouble to create real bird species for the game. And thank you for going through the trouble of identifying them! So cool. :) Love this game.

I had no idea they had put in the work to actually research the wildlife that lives there. That's so neat! Thanks for the information.

As a Biologist, I can only approve this! Awesome work.
It's cool that the developers actually put existing birds in the game.

Seems the game developers really did their homework. They could have placed just some random birds into the game instead. Awesome to see they actually researched Orgeon wild life.

Agreed. Their attention to detail is amazing - this game really must have been a labor of love.

Hello. Nice work. I have edited this image & transformed it into a 16:10 landscape layout. I was wondering if you would mind if I uploaded it? Of course I would provide you with full accreditation & a link back to this original. If not, then no worries - I will keep the file for personal use only. :)

Mm.  Not bad, really.  Always surprised me how close Arcadia Bay is to its various real-life counterparts, honestly.
