“See Rocket City” Bird House
The “See Rocket City” Bird House is a larger-than-life bird house structure that provides an iconic entrance to Tweetsville and gives a playful nod to the famous “See Rock City” red barns.
Lewis Bird Watch
The Lewis Bird Watch allows you to observe birds in their natural environment from behind a one-way glass. The bird watch looks out on an enclosed landscape where a variety of native plants provide food and shelter for the birds and a bubbling water feature provides a place for them to drink and bathe.
Giant Bird Nest
Measuring 25 feet in diameter, this giant bird nest serves as a place for imaginative play as well as a gathering place for educational programs.
The nest was created by a team of artists based in Maine and Kentucky: Billy Ray Sims, a basket maker; Ann McClellan, an artist and educator; and Justin Roberts, a willow sculpture artist.
Three tiny homes represent homes in three different settings: urban, suburban, and rural. These homes are both places to play and models of how you can create a bird-friendly environment in your own backyard, no matter where you live.
