Timeline: Big Bird

Oct 28, 2011. Big Bird's big move: Beloved icon of C.S. Mott Children's Hospital settles into new home. "Big Bird, long a favorite with youngsters being treated at the hospital, came to Mott via a donor. Years ago, a man called the hospital’s child-life department to say that a store at Briarwood Mall was getting rid of a giant Big Bird statue and wondering if the hospital would be interested in acquiring it, Warner said. When hospital officials said they wanted it, he purchased it and donated it."
