Please help me find business cards that carry a logo of an owl, falcon or a bird, etc..

I'm trying to make sure my idea for a logo/ business card isn't something I unintentionally copied from a half-recollection...
Can you think of a business card with a stylized owl/ eagle/falcon/bird?
The birds can be either sitting or in flight, however not in a crest or as a mascot.
Sincere thanks in advance.

Here you are. I think you are going about this backwards though. Show us your logo and we'll tell you if we've seen something similar.

There's an owl logo in the letterhead here. Same logo on the firm's business cards.

It's not just about the logo, it's the whole card layout with the bird logo in the corner. I'm sorry I can't upload it.
The logo is an owl that is drawn as a cross between "Glaukos", Athena's owl, as portrayed on countless ancient coins - and the ancient Egyptian owl hieroglyphic. So, it's fairly recognizable, however I may be over-thinking a plate of beans and simply imagine that I already saw somewhere a business card with a hieroglyphic owl, after all it's a fairly common symbol..

The owl logos I think of are Rice University and Hooters -- two ends of the marketing spectrum!

Show us the concept. Otherwise this is too vague to answer.

My mom is rather obsessed with using eagle imagery in her branding materials. As her defacto graphic designer, I have made her many business cards, logos, power point backgrounds, etc. using bird and eagle imagery. I'm working on a damn placard right now with a soaring, triumphant eagle. There's probably a ton of people out there using bird imagery and I think you can use bird imagery as well without working about copyright infringement.

I wonder if you can upload your bird (especially if it's stock and not original artwork) into one of those image search match things. I think Tin Eye is one. Of course, if you don't come up with anything that's no proof that someone else isn't using your bird.

The old Channel13 (NYC) WNDT logo and Sheffield Wednesday are the only two I can think of.
