Where be the Bird Man?

Birdie.I was driving down Bundy in West L.A. this evening when I saw it: a yellow bird icon dangling from the wire overhead. The same bird I'd seen in dozens of other locations in different parts of Los Angeles over the past year or so.

I have it on good authority that there are some 200 of these colorful creatures suspended from wires at intersections across the city. They're part of a project by an anonymous dude some have creatively dubbed the 'Bird Man.'

What do the birds mean? He won't say. But he's put his painted plywood pals up in Frisco and Santa Barbara and had plans for NY and France.

In my three weeks as an OC resident, I've yet to come across the Bird Man's handiwork. Has anyone out there had better luck?
