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.

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

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!)

Cheers,
Jo

Excellent chicken!

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