I'm curious to learn the name of a magician that played at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island Michigan in the 1970's. My father worked for the hotel and I had the opportunity to see many magic acts and meet many magicians that came through, including Karrell Fox and others.

This particular magician worked in tails. He did a bird act concluding with "where do the birds go". He was also a very talented close up magician. He was very dexterous with 50 cent pieces. I believe he was the only magician at that time that did a bird act at Grand Hotel.

I know this is very sketchy info, but curious if anyone may know who that magician might be. As a young teen, he made quite an impression on me and I'm just curious to learn more.

Don't know for sure but it sounds like Bob Downey who was out of Detroit.
