Meadow Mansions in East Park – 5 miles
1. Carolina wren (Wrent Stabilized by Cassandra Raihl). This dual bird house (made for birds who often sing duets together) is hanging from the eaves of the out building behind Lemon Hill Mansion.
2. Carolina chickadee (Gone Unnoticed by Jesse Harrod). This blue-hued cedar-shingled bird house is installed in Mount Pleasant Meadow, just southeast of Mount Pleasant Mansion.
3. Tree swallow (Real Tree by Kaitlin Pomerantz). These bird houses made of painted dried pear gourds can be found at the Boxers’ Trail, at the intersection of Reservoir Drive and Randolph Drive.
4. Mourning dove (Nothing here but a pile of boxes by Lucia Thomé).This playful bird house is on the second floor porch of the playhouse at Smith Memorial Playground & Playhouse.
5. American kestrel (Kestrel Birdhouse by Claes Gabriel). This brightly-hued bird house is installed in Cliff’s Meadow, in the trees near the ruins of the Cliffs, a former country house. The meadow is accessible from Sedgley Woods Disc Golf Course – take the grass path back through the course and into the meadow.
