Booming Prairie Chicken
Rothsay, MN
The Booming Prairie Chicken was built in 1976. It is made of concrete over a metal frame by Art Fosse. The statue is 13 feet tall by 18 feet long. Rothsay claims to be the Prairie Chicken Capital of Minnesota. There are large numbers of them roaming the prairies in the area. In early spring, the male prairie chicken performs a mating ritual called "booming" during which he spreads his wings and tail feathers, inflates the orange sacs on either side of his neck, and makes a booming sound.

Wren
Topeka, KS
This Wren statue was built in the 1930s from concrete and wire mesh. It was originally installed on top of the WREN radio station in Lawrence, KS. It was originally built to promote Jenny Wren Flour. In 1947, the station moved to Topeka and brought along the wren statue. It was restored and moved to this former fountain in 1993. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

These two Sparrow statues were created by Myfanwy MacLeod and are entitled "The Birds." The 16 foot tall male and female sparrows were installed in False Creek Plaza after the 2010 Winter Olympics. The site was used in 2010 as the Olympic Village. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Swan Head
Lakeview, OH
Swan
Elk Rapids, MI
This Swan Head is on the property of the Villa Chalets. I believe it has been here since at least the 1970s. This could be a duck, goose or some other bird - I'm open to correction! Does anyone know more about it? [map]

The Swan in Elk Rapids is 15 feet tall. It was built in 1966 to carry Miss Elk Rapids in the Cherry Festival and Harbor Days parades. The statue was then used in various parades and public appearances in the 1970s before being installed here permanently outside the Chamber of Commerce building. [map]
