Comments: Bird labyrinth. Unlike a traditional labyrinth, which has one path which leads to the center, and then reverses to exit, this labyrinth has just one path; it enters one leg and exits the other. Follow it!

Bird 22

Comments: The theme for today was bridges. This bird involves a riddle, which is very North Jersey-centric. Ready?
This piece features:
A cat toy shaped like a chicken with a rounded base, which makes it wobbly.
A hastily-constructed bridge made of a water bottle, a thermos, a wooden spoon, and a $1 bill. Whose picture is on the $1 bill? Right.
Here's the riddle: Why did the wobbly chicken cross the George Washington Bridge?
Answer: To get to the Teeter-Bird-O Airport!!!
