I don't know if this is a woodpecker or a roadrunner.
He will be guarding this bare hosta bed all winter.
It is made of railroad spikes welded together and
was a gift from a friend for Christmas several years ago.

Hilarious! He's had one remedial paint job in the last 10 years. I
really should wash him a give him a coat of wax for the winter
and he would look better for the spring.
Thanks for liking my guard bird.

My friend Angel bought this at Shreveport, LA at the Riverfront Festival
from a vendor for my Christmas present.
