The Tallest Bird in North America

This sculpture of a whooping crane is about three times as tall as the bird (at five feet or so). The real bird is the tallest in North American and it winters in the Aransas Refuge off the Texas Coast. You find this tribute sculpture at the fancy shopping area in North Austin called The Domain.


  1. Hmmm....although I have been to the Domain a couple of times, I have never noticed the giant crane...guess I will have to keep my eyes peeled the next time. :-)

  2. It's on the south side of Sur La Table which is on the west side of that 'street' that goes from Macy's to Neiman's.
