Lol. It is a plaster-of-Paris model of the Common Green Treefrog .
This frog is much beloved by the general public. It 'croaks' in drain pipes when rain is imminent. But like all large amphibians they do catch and eat anything smaller than themselves. Little known, this species catches bats by waiting at the small entrances of caves at night.
Mary, yes, it puts the cockatoos off for similar reasons. They are challenged by an image that gets larger as they approach and does not retreat. Unfortunately, I cannot put mirrors everywhere and sometimes I have to resort to wire netting or just cry.
Out yesterday was this one. It was sold to me as HEMEROCALLIS LILIOASPHODELUS but I doubt it more every year because the bloom can be more orange than yellow.
I am using a dye when I spray the clumps now. It is an excellent facilitator because one can see what one has sprayed. This blue product also gives the foliage of the daylilies a lovely green colour as a side effect, which causes great admiration. But it gives me a lovely blue colour. It is supposed to be biodegradable. Well if it is not, I am.
