What Birds Know is a surreal-fantasy comic following three teenaged friends who encounter an ancient evil in the forests outside their town. In addition to the surreal elements, What Birds Know features strong themes of growing up: the loss of innocence and disillusionment with childhood dreams.

Summary

During an outing for a school project in the forest, three teenage girls from the town of Ev-la Nin encounter a mysterious tower at the edge of a mountain. Curious, the three friends enter the tower and find a parallel world on the other side, a warped version of their own.

However, their wonder at this strange new world quickly turns sour as strange things begin to happen. As the situation worsens, the girls soon find themselves forced to face the darker aspects of their pasts as well as that of all of Eva-La Nin.

Reception

A review on The Webcomic Police gave it a 5 out of 5 stating:

What Birds Know differs from a typical fantasy webcomic is that it's female-oriented. Aside from the main characters being women, the flashbacks mainly focus on their relationships with their moms and the way their moms raised them, which places an emphasis on domestic environments much more than what a reader would expect in an action-oriented story. What really makes it stand out, though, is that its focus on character development, dramatic tension, realistic dialogue, and visual storytelling gives it a broader appeal than a normal swords-'n'-sorcery tale would have."[3]
