Manchester Museum Bookclub 24 June

June 24, 2013

In 1935 this cockatoo woke up the Landlord of the Crown Inn, Amersham Bucks, thus saving the residents from a fire. A local taxidermist preserved the cockatoo which is now in Amersham Museum.

The plot of June’s Manchester Bookclub is centred on the search for a lost taxidermy specimen – the Ulieta Bird. See other taxidermy specimens and discuss the book, at 5.30 pm in the Manchester Museum cafe on Tuesday 24 June.
