Photo of magician Joseph Gabriel with flying McCaws

Magic and Macaws

Joseph's Birds
Joseph Gabriel is a seasoned performer who incorporates magic in his exotic "Trained Bird" act. Appearing as the headliner in the Flamingo Hilton's City Lites show in Las Vegas Nevada at the time of this photograph, Joseph and his colorful macaws and ultra smart cockatoos later went to Broadway. Photographed in the studio with several strobes and hot lights for the time exposure. One exposure on film, the birds wings created their own wind machines in the smoke as they flew on command to Joseph. No retouching.
