This FAQ is written in the order that you will find each item, so
you're not running around in circles. Every level has 6 birds 
and 3 metals, and some levels have televisions as well.

---CHAPTER 1---

1. BIRD - Right after the cops flashlight dies go into the room on the 
right. The bird is on the shelving unit in the back.

2. METAL - After the first fight go up the stairs, through the door 
and continue straight forward. Turn left then take an immediate right. 
You should be facing some walls with the pink insulation exposed. Go 
into the room on the right and on the far back left corner is the metal.
(Eyes are drawn on the wall).

3. BIRD - When you fight the second guy in this level the bird is on one
of the four windowsills in the same room. 

4. BIRD - After your gun gets taken you have to move the desk to continue.
From here go into the left room, then right. The bird is on the floor 
in front of the red medkit container. 

5. BIRD - You will enter a room and you will get the prompt to use one of 
your CSI gizmos. Use the gas spectrometer to find the dead bird.

5. METAL - After the guy throws a chair through the wall that allows you 
to continue (you have to fight him and his buddy) you enter a 
flashback-crazy eyed mode. At the end of this hallway there is a hole 
in the wall. The metal piece is just beside the hole. 
(Eyes are drawn around the hole).

6. BIRD - On the floor in the room that the other cop tosses you 
the fire axe.

7. TV - Once you get the fire axe that the cop throws too you back 
track a little bit. You should have passed a door that required a 
fire axe to get through. TV's in there. 

8. BIRD - In the last area (a construction zone, lots of unfinished 
walls, furniture, ect.) you will get attack by two guys. The bird is
located in the left part of this area. You will see a piece of plywood 
resting on too saw horses with a 2x4 across it. The bird is resting here.

9. METAL - In the right side of the last area. You will see some cupboards
(one has a sledge hammer), go right and look for the large column in the 
center. The metal piece is hanging off it. (Eyes are all over the column).

---CHAPTER 2---

1. BIRD - After you open the panel with the crowbar to open the bay door, 
go forward until you find a white door in the back. The bird is in this 
small room on the floor.

pick the sledge hammer off the floor turn right. (The eyes are drawn 
on the wall).

3. BIRD - When you get to the train station you will whip out your gas 
spectrometer. The bird is by the rear left ATM. 

4. BIRD - Just after you get through with the thugs go through the door 
on the end. To your right are an ATM machine and Health case. At the double
door dead end our two long trays, underneath the right one is your dead bird
(listen for the flies). That's how I caught it.

5. T.V. SET - When you get the fingerprint off the elevator call button turn
right. There is a room there that requires a fire axe to get through.

6. METAL - While trying to find an axe to turn on the elevator power 
(and get to #4) you will find 2 spots where you can jump down into a 
underground area. Look between 2 large horizontal pipes down there to 
find the metal. (The eyes are drawn between the pipes). 

7. BIRD - On the floor after you get off the elevator and continue forward
 a bit. It is squawking on the ground.

8. BIRD - In the toilet found in the men's bathroom.

you will come to a balcony over looking the train station. 
The bird is on the balcony's rail.

---CHAPTER 9---
<credit: Roadside Carver>

There is no specific order to get any of these birds & metal plates. 
I like to get the scary stuff out of the way first, that's why I go 
into the basement first.

---Bird #1:

From the start, make a left towards a room, bird is on the table.

---Metal Plate #1: 

Go through double doors and go straight down and make a left into 
the very last room in the hallway. Move small cabinet.

---Bird #2:

In the kitchen area. Open the Refrigerator, bird is inside.

---Metal Plate #2:

After getting Bird #2, enter the door that brings you into the basement. 
At the end of the stairs, make a right into a short hallway. There will 
be an entrance in front of you, but you will want to make a quick right 
(you'll see a short stack of boxes. Metal plate is by the door laying on 
its side against the wall.

If you don't want to read all of that, just go under the basement stairs.

---Bird #3:

In front of the large mirror in the basement.

---TV Pattern:

In the basement behind the only rusted oven down there. Move the oven.

---Bird #4:

At the edge of the stairs upstairs, head into the opposite hallway. 
Enter the 2nd door to your left. The bird is underneath the flipped-over 
bathtub, lift it up & grab sledgehammer in the closet.

---Bird #5: Same hallway, enter room on the right, bird is on the bed.

Metal Plate #3: Same room, open closet and nab the metal plate.

---Bird #6:

In the same room, break the lock on the door with the sledgehammer and
go upstairs into the attic. Make a right and you should see a black 
bird lying on the floor before the entrance into the back room. Keep 
your sledgehammer because you can take out Mr.. twinsticks with one hit.

---CHAPTER 10---

1. BIRD - walk to the dead end and grab the 2x4 on fire. The blockage
comes down to reveal a 'crowing' bird behind it. <crawl through>

2. METAL - keep heading straight after the creepy shadow movement 
blows out the archway's side. And follow the fire in front of you, 
pass through the opening in the fence and turn right. You should 
see a white building with eyes covering the bottom half. Your piece 
is located there.

3. BIRD - After you dispose of the fat thug with a 2x4 on fire, pass
through hole he made and stop right next to the blue horse trailer.
Move it to obtain your second bird.

4. BIRD - follow tire track through the barn to find a red tractor 
on the left. On the hood of it lies a 'decaying' bird.

5. METAL - When you jump the gate you get ambushed. After killing
all the crawlies look up and witness eyes all about the ceiling.
Five feet from where you jumped the gate on the right side is the 
piece posted on the pole.

6. BIRD - when you come to the little house on the hill <where you 
flip the switch for the crates blocking your path> check behind one 
of the four green trash bins, a 'decaying' bird is behind the second

7. BIRD - the long white building in which 4-5 fat thugs ambush you 
in <the one with the 2 sub machine guns and 4 health packs!!> As you 
enter look on the table beside the first gun and health packs for 
the 'flapping' bird.

8. METAL - Just after you down the second fighting stick guy <the 
'Hate' in which I like to call them> look at the entrance to the next
white building. There are eyes along the door jams and the right side
of the wall. On the table is your last metal piece.

9. BIRD - final bird is a given. Just before the end boss, there is a 
bird stabbed to the door with eyes crawling all over it. Grab the stick
to acquire the bird... *swooosh* and your gone....
