Bird’s Hay Bale Art Farm

Bird’s Hay Bale Art Farm is a large field beside Highway 43 that contains many amusing and imaginative creations, most of which were made with large bales of hay.

Many motorists driving along Highway 43 between Demopolis and Eutaw have done a double-take when they see Bird’s Farm for the first time.  Bird’s Farm is a large field beside Highway 43 that contains many amusing and imaginative creations, most of which were made with large bales of hay. The hay bale creations include a ship on rough seas, a rabbit, a helicopter, an army tank, a matador in trouble with a bull, three monkeys that represent “hear no evil”, “see no evil” and “speak no evil”, an octopus devouring a seaman, a pink muscle car, and several other amusing creations.  Bird’s Farm also has several creations that contain no hay bales. These include Snoopy crashing the Red Baron’s airplane into a tree, and a towering 32-foot Tin Man that was made with bathtubs, 55-gallon drums, an old fuel tank, a rusted out fertilizer spreader and other scrapped materials.

Face In The Window
The Pickens County Courthouse in Carrollton Alabama is the site of a face peering from a window. As the story goes, the face is that of Henry Wells, a freed slave accused of burning the courthouse on November 16, 1876. Being chased by a mob, it is said Wells tried to hide in the attic of the courthouse and was looking out the window when lightening struck etching his face in the window glass.
