This looks exactly the way it did in the movie. It is privately owned now I do think there are certain times that you can get a tour. So I sugest checking the website. You can drive right up to the fence.

We asked in Bodega Bay where the house was that was used in "The Birds" We were given the route to find it. Not too many people around but the place was locked up and you had no access. But you could photo the outside to your hearts content.

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.
