That's funny.  I assumed that the Christian holy man and baptism were the
parts Wolfe had added.   Neat to see that the nifty part (the flock
dwindling to a single bird) is from Wolfe (of course, I guess he might
have picked that up somewhere else as well).

Interesting that Wolfe leaves out what happens to the Sidhe after they
revert to their original forms.
