Birds - nature and art
Brewer's blackbird at Point Reyes Station
In the bright sun these iridescent blue-black birds look metallic. They have a very distinguised call that is very loud and sharp. They are permanent residents in the Western parts of the US and can be seen in open fields as well as parks and city streets.
I always like to visit the back patio area of the wonderful Flower Power store in Point Reyes Station. It's a peaceful haven with plants, wind chimes, and these striking metal bird sculptures. Don't those little birds to the upper left look real?
