I confess that when I am driving around I am always happy to see hawks, Canada geese, or Great Blue Herons (Oh curse you blue herons, I have often tried and never been able to get a good picture of one of you) flying around. But there are also lots of static images of birds around town.
This guardian spirit looks as though it has been protecting this building since the 1920’s.
There is a hole conveniently left in this building for a bird to swoop through.
This perch on the front of this store is a great place to take off from and soar to the skies.
Some birds are just there to be gorgeous.
Like this one too.
This one is a school mascot, ready to inspire the students (not much chance of that happening).
This totem pole carved from a dead tree obviously protects this house and perhaps the entire block.
There is currently an exhibit of bird painting inspired by Audubon and surrealism that is absolutely wonderful. So these posters hang downtown from the light posts.
The newest members of the flock are parrots. These birds hang across an alleyway downtown and are part of the downtown art project.
