Have you seen my bird? Rigo 23’s “found lost bird” posters

Rigo 23 discusses lost bird posters he has found throughout San Francisco and how they reflect the lives of the people who post them. From 1984 to 1999, Rigo (born Ricardo Gouveia) used the last two digits of the current year as part of his name, and from 2000 to 2003 he used the first and last digits, finally settling upon "Rigo 23."
