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.


  1. Thats a really good use of old car parts. The human genius on work again. Thanks for showing.

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

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

  4. 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.

  5. very interesting artwork.


  6. OH! I really like this sculpture. It made me smile. :)

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

  8. Some people just have too much time on their hands!!!

  9. 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!)


  10. Hi John....How in the world you find these things is beyond me : )
    That is some rooster you bumped
    into ; ) !!
    The imagination,of a creative and crazy person haha!

  11. Excellent chicken!

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