Bill Lishman

Bill Lishman is best known for his role in Operation Migration, which continues his successful efforts to re-shape avian migration patterns across North American. Lishman earned the nickname Father Goose by developing the means to encourage large flocks of birds to settle in new nesting areas by leading them in flight using an ultra-light aircraft. His unusual methods have had great success over three decades and were the subject of the 1996 film, Fly Away Home. He is also a noted artist and sculptor and designed the geodesic-style buried home, where he lives near Toronto. His great contribution as a furniture designer is the 1976 Lishman Rocker, an apparent homage to the sinuos lines of the Nouveau-influenced bentwood rocker by Thonet.
