Continuing with my series on the Knott House, here are some more pictures from Luella Knott's Victorian living room. The mounted birds under glass are located on the left side of the mantle over the fireplace. There was also another mounted bird on the other side of the mantle. I found them both a little disconcerting since I am such a bird lover. Luella's poem about the birds is attached and reads:
"Mounted Birds ---
We're glad that you do not think that we
Are silly or absurd;
That you take time to read a rhyme
About a little bird."
