Twelve small ceramic relief panels that once adorned the chimney of the Cleveland Metropark Zoo's Bird Building. The building came down in 2004, but Schreckengost's work was saved and stored. Now, much of the smaller terra cotta plates can be found on the walls of other pavillions and buildings around the zoo, such as the Stillwater Place and the Circle of Wildlife Carousel.
