These little birdies are protecting a bridge in my city of Isesaki. They are placed in the center of the biking path to make sure that a) bikers slow down before they get to the busy road and b) car drivers don’t turn onto the bike path.
The cutest thing about them though, is that someone made them little winter parkas! It looks like someone took some older socks, cute them in half, and then sew a little tie into the top.
Heh. Little winter birds. Soooo cute!
