On the north wall of the same building…..

metal stairs to a small landing outside a door on the second storey of a concrete brick building.  The walls of the bottom floor are covered with graffiti.  Immediately behind the stairs is a large blue letter Z.

If you look closely at the above picture, on the right hand side metal pole supporting the landing, is a sticker.  Below, that sticker up close.

A small yellow bird on a small sticker.  It is an Uber 5000 bird, wearing glasses and holding a red book.  He's on a metal pole.

Looking west along the alley towards Roncesvalles Ave.

looking west along an alley in late winter.  Street art on the walls on the left, garage doors on the right.  Buildings on Roncesvalles can be seen at the end of the alley which is about a block long.

but if you walk slightly west, away from Roncesvalles, you will encounter two more pieces by Birdo.  The ‘Dreamer’ is on the same building as the Destination Mammal Cabana that is pictured above.

A street art piece painted in a small stairwell, down from alley level.  The door way is the head of a woman and her arms extend over part of the stairwell walls.  She is dressed in red and blue including a birdo hat.
