These giant birds will soon start
popping up all over town.

It's part of the Blacksburg
Partnership's new "Gobble de Art"
program.

75 fiber glass birds will be
decorated and painted by local artists
and placed around town.

The first bird was put up today
in front of the town municipal
building.

Blacksburg is hoping the birds
will become a local tourist attraction
this summer.

The statues will eventually be
auctioned off to raise money for the
partnership.
