One of four old barns on the Davis Ranch, the Sneeze barn, acquired its name when a family member commented that a good sneeze would blow it down. Repairs were made and artist and family member John Ivie designed and painted this mural depicting frequent migratory visitors to the ranch and nearby Colusa National Wildlife Refuge.
