DESCRIPTION

The Florida Museum of Natural History will display “The Lost Bird Project,” which includes five cast-bronze sculptures of the extinct Carolina Parakeet, Great Auk, Heath Hen, Labrador Duck and Passenger Pigeon, starting Nov. 1. Artist Todd McGrain created the statues as a tribute to endangered and extinct species. Ranging from 4 to 6 feet in height, the sculptures were permanently placed where each bird was last seen in the wild, ranging from Fogo Island, Newfoundland, to Okeechobee, Florida, with traveling exhibits of the same figures touring nationally.
