Shears and gears. Rakes and shovels and spades. Motorcycle tanks and balers. These are some of the scrap metal pieces that make the birds in our yard. Because the yard is large and filled with trees and shrubs, the birds do not scream out but sit peacefully for us to enjoy.
This is the largest bird, almost six feet tall.
This one is large as well and sits on a perch. I love his blue beak.
A smaller one, about four feet tall.
And the smallest one, less than three feet tall.
This one seems to be squawking all the time.
We do enjoy our yard birds. And are glad the metals were re-used in such a lovely fashion. Friends who visit are surprised when they see one of them, often after a couple of visits. They often ask, "Did you just get this?" Then they look around for the others, amazed they hadn't noticed them before. Large as they are, they seem to fit right in.
