Sponsored Post: Film Fridays presents “The Lost Bird Project” at Audubon Center

A fishing boat passes by the bronze sculpture of the Great Auk on Joe Batt's Point on Fogo Island, Newfoundland. The sculpture is part of artist Todd McGrain's project to memorialize the extinction of five North American birds; the Carolina Parakeet, Great Auk, Passenger Pigeon, Heath Hen and Labrador Duck. The documentary film, The Lost Bird Project, follows McGrain as he searches for the locations where the birds were last seen in the wild and negotiates for permission to install his large bronze sculptures there.
