Gathering of the Flock

Thought you may like to see the flock as it grew. The two birds in the foreground of each frame are the newest additions ... one of Alicia's and one of mine. Enjoy!



Then they all flew away (half of them to Milwaukee) leaving the fountain to the metal sculpture bird who usually occupies it. Real birds come to visit him for a drink and occasionally to bathe.

love the birds.... how oh how did you get the legs so well anchored to provide stability to stand?

Nellie's Needles said...

The birds legs are sturdy and they stand quite well ... especially on a flat surface. I was able to balance some of them on the rocks while others got a toe or foot trapped under a rock to keep them upright.
