Bird Center/Polling Place



historian Wystan Stevens. "Erected in 1905, it disappears seasonally under mounds of ivy." To Lesley Littman, "the building itself looks like a bird nest built into all that greenery!"

Except on election days, writes Stephanie Hunter, the building is filled from May through August with "buckets and baskets of chirping birds." "Right now it is working at capacity with over 100 birds," writes the center's volunteer coordinator, Dorothy Stock, "including a Purple Martin, a Baltimore Oriole...and the rarely seen Least Bittern."

Thirty-four entrants correctly identified the ivy-covered building. Amy Schoenoff is our random drawing winner and will take her $25 gift certificate to Shalimar. She writes, "'Yay!' for helping little birds!"

To enter this month's contest, use the clue and photo on the "Back Page" of the July Ann Arbor Observer to find the spot shown, then follow the instructions at the bottom on the page.    (end of article)
