Bird Pots

Brundidge, Alabama

This rooster is constructed entirely from automobile bumpers.

Notice those dark clouds in the north.  I was racing south at the time trying to outrun severe thunderstorm threats for the evening.  We made it.

So what are bird pots?  I don't know.  I did notice a lot of gourd-shaped bird nests which would be strung out suspended on a long line on farms and wonder if they are what the sign refers to.  Maybe someone from the South could comment plus adding what type of bird would nest inside a gourd.

Some people are so creative, it is done very good. I like it.

Very good sculpture. I think I see a rear view mirror and some bumpers, but can't identify much in the way of parts.

i'm LOVING the sculpture! would look great in my front field (if i kept chickens, anyway).

quite a few songbirds would nest in gourds, i think.

The bumper rooster is very cool! I was wondering about the pots, too.

Quite a few birds would nest inside a gourd (Google knows them all by name!) But I wonder if the birds have to do much work on it to make it liveable, or do people have to ready it for them. (Big G. didn't say!)

Excellent chicken!

I also wonder how some of these early monuments were made! Makes the term "primitive" look a bit stupid!
