The church was built in the 1940s near Tampa Bay. There was a tall cross which lighted up to direct fisherman back to land.
Hundreds of people gathered to see eyes, beak and wings peak out of a bird among the rooftops. Sooner the church became an internet sensation.
Dee Dee Parker, a long time congregation member, said that they saw many people coming there to take pictures of the church. But they were not aware about popularity of the church, spreading around the world.
Popularity of the church was similar to the Twitter sensation in 2011, the ‘Hitler house’.
