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.

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]

The Pheasant in Henry is also known as the "Ten Thousand Pound Pheasant". It was built from cement in 1950. The statue is located on the site of Tinkertown which is now gone. This 1950s photo [thanks Julie Woessner] shows that the statue originally had a Western saddle and was used for photo-ops. A Mule statue stands next to him. [map]

Gautier, MS
Swan Head [gone]
Lakeview, OH
Elk Rapids, MI
Lakeland, FL
This Swan statue is one of two that were previously installed at the Singing River Mall in Gautier the early 1980s. The mall was demolished in 2014. This statue was installed in front of Clark's Attic in 2017. The second swan was installed just after this photo was taken in 2019. [map]

The Swan Head was on the property of the Villa Chalets. I believe it had been here since at least the 1970s. This could be a duck, goose, or some other bird. I'm open to correction! It was still there in 2018 but gone by 2019.

The Swan statue 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]

This Swan in Lakeland is one of 62 statues that were installed during the Swansation civic art project in 2002. Lakeland is known as the City of Swans. Lake Morton and Lake Mirror are home to hundreds of swans. This statue is located in front of Boring IT & Print Solutions. For more, see this website. [map]
