So a mad dash across the lobby, past the Ellsworth Kelly painting and the Henry Moore bronze, was the only real solution .
Several personnel recorded the unusual little journey with cameras, and the outcome was posted the next day around the museum page . Since then, museum visitors have begun to appear looking for the fine feathered guests .

The museum wishes to obtain that accomplished soon .
