More on the Bird Project

For those who would like to make a pilgrimage to the birds in the Lost Bird Project I wrote about yesterday,  in their permanent homes, here's a great map from the website with detailed info on getting to them.

Carolina Parakeet- Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park north of Okeechobee, Florida.

Great Auk- Joe Batt's Point Fogo Island, Newfoundland

Heath Hen- Manuel F. Correllus State Forest off the Edgartown - West Tisbury Road on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts.

Labrador Duck- Brand Park, along the Chemung River, in Elmira, New York.

Passenger Pigeon- Grange Insurance Audubon Center south of downtown Columbus, Ohio.

And the birds are still on tour. According to the project, The Lost Bird Project "Yes, the birds are still touring. Currently, there are three sets of the memorials that travel for temporary exhibits. Here's a list of current exhibits; all five sculptures are on exhibit at the Carey Center for Global Good in Rensselaerville, New York; the Passenger Pigeon, Labrador Duck and Carolina Parakeet are at the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, California; and there is a Carolina Parakeet in the "Around the Horn" art exhibit in Hilton Head, South Carolina."
