    He looks like he's mounted on the rebar in that first pic --even more so on that last pic. Looks like quite the shower!

    No,I didn't impale is bird.I bring my camera to work.My yard guy asked if the camera boy (Me)had his camera today.I said yes,he told me that this bird was out, next to our yard taking a shower. I went to see what he was taking about and shot these pic's.I thought it was strange the way it was perched on this piece of steel. Still Having Fun,Rich
