Large Eagle

The eagle is on Rt 100, about 1/4 mile north of Cold Hollow Cider Mill, on left side of road.

[Barbara, 09/29/2020]

The 2020 sculpture, with a wingspan of 25 feet, is made from old chrome bumpers and is for sale for $40,000. It replaces a previous sculpture of a horse, by the same artist, that had stood in the roadside spot for years before it was purchased. So the eagle may be there for a while.
