Scrap Metal Eagle

Very underwhelming. The weeds were almost taller than the Eagle so you couldn't get very close. It was not as big as we expected either.

Rusting eagle.

The eagle is still rusting away. The grass around it is tall, and with the fall colors the eagle blends in and can be easy to miss. [Kathleen Whelan, 12/03/2013]

Metal bird.

Not really sure of the purpose or origin of this sculpture. There appears to have been some sort of business there at one time, but no signs are posted. Perhaps the eagle was some sort of attempt to get people to stop at their business. Worked on me!
