The Wilhelm's Portland Memorial Mausoleum, which overlooks the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, is now the site of the largest mural in the United States, and it's entirely for the birds. The wetland motif mural encompasses almost 50,000 square feet. Begun as a great blue heron mural in 1991 in honor of Portland's city bird, the project has recently been completed thanks to a generous collaboration of sponsors.
The mural now features dozens of bird species found in the Portland area, including wood ducks, an osprey, a red-tailed hawk, a red-winged blackbird and many more.
