Bird Island - home of the flying men.
I have at last uncovered a few facts about my island. Read on and you will
understand the name Vogel Island.
Some archeological research done in the mid 1950's revealed that the island was inhabited about 600 years ago. The inhabitants occupied the island for some 200 years according to the evidence. Apparently these people supported themselves by fishing and limited agriculture. Evidence also showed that they had fairly sophisticated boats similar to canoes and it is believed that they were seaworthy enough to allow interisland trading. The report that I read kept referring to these people as the "Bird People", a term that intriqued me.
