The Bird Girl

Also known as Koo Koo, the Bird Girl suffered from a form of dwarfism called Virchow-Seckel syndrome, or “bird-headed dwarfism”.

She first performed as the Blind Girl From Mars, but was much more successful as the Bird Girl, even featuring in Tod Browning´s “Freaks”.

Her show was one of the most entertaining at Coney Island for many years.
