CORRECTION:The big red bird has a name. Do NOT enter contest below. See update here.
Mr. Pickles has a new neighbor.
Liberty Arts artist Michael Waller installed a giant cardinal on the slope outside the metalworks on Foster Street yesterday. (We have a story coming in Saturday's Durham News.) It sits across the sidewalk from the giant box turtle (that would be Mr. Pickles), just up from the rusted metal bridge over Ellerbe Creek.
Thing is, the bird doesn't haver a name. So tell us in 25 words or less what you think Durham should call its big red bird. We'll give all the suggestions to park director Camille Berry. If the park board picks your suggestion, we'll buy you and your friends or family up to five Central Park T-shirts. The winner will be announced April 4. Send your suggestions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or just post them here on the blog.
