The heath hen and four other extinct North American birds – the great auk, Labrador duck, passenger pigeon, and Carolina parakeet – are memorialized in The Lost Bird Project by Todd McGrain and in a documentary with the same title. Over the past decade, McGrain, who is artist in residence at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, created bronze sculptures of the five birds. Each statue is installed at a site where the bird was last seen in the wild; the memorial to the heath hen is in Manuel F. Corellus State Forest on the Vineyard.
