Yes, this is the backdrop (one of several) for "The Birds". Looks pretty much the same from the outside. Have never been inside and not even sure if you can go in, but doubt there would be much to see. Go for the nostalgia, but don't expect much.

We stopped while in Bodega, and snapped a couple of photos. The school is a private home, and tours are not available, but the exterior is in good shape, looking just as it did in the film.

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.

We just stopped and took pictures as it is a private residence now. Great to see to help with the movie The Birds. Pictured it in my mind as being closer to the water due to the movie. A very interesting building.

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.
