Auburn, Washington: Giant Crow with French Fries

12 feet tall and 18 feet long, the angular black aluminum crow carries a french fry in its mouth; a discarded order of fries lies beside it. It's a tribute to Big Daddy's Drive-In, which once stood at this spot, and the town's fast food-loving crows. The crow's eyes light up at night.
