Polly Want a Lug Nut?

While most birds feed on bugs or berries, this feisty fowl's on the lookout for nuts and bolts!

This wild creature is no quirk of evolution, but the creation of artist Fred Conlon. Standing proudly on its perch, it boasts a body made from an adjustable wrench, a 'feather' crest of nails, and wings of cut steel. Insert the sturdy metal stake into the ground, and the playful fellow will add a flight of fancy to your garden that will have all the other birds atwitter. Handmade in Utah.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
