Summary:
Attached to the low brick walls of a small courtyard in the middle of the Clarendon Avenue Park are four bronze plaques shaped like birds. The plaques are incised with lines to loosely indicate the physical characteristics of each bird such as beaks and wings. Originally there were six plaques, but two of the plaques are missing. Holes in the brick wall indicate where the missing bird plaques were installed.
