    We are huge Alfred Hitchcock fans. We had to go to the the school house used during filming if The Birds. They were not giving tours the day we were, but we got some really good pictures.  more »

    Always wanted to see this building as it was in the movie The Birds. A little town of Bodega surrounds it! Nice little shops. It is right behind a beautiful little church.  more »

    Not much information provided, but I would image the home isn't catering to tourists. Nice if you want to see The Birds filming location in person, it's a very short walk from the church.

    Very beautifully preserved school. Please keep in mind that it is now a private residence. The owners are kind enough to not make a fuss over folks taking pictures, so please return the favor and grant them the respect they deserve. A side note… St. Theresa of Avila, the church which is also featured in the movie, as well as the Ansel Adams Work, is just beyond this property and is as beautiful as ever.
