24. Big Bird!
Dorchester, N.B., is close to the Shepody mudflats where thousands of sandpipers gather each year to feed before flying south for winter. Normally weighing about 30 grams, the bird can double its weight in days! It would take a lot longer than that for this 4-1/2-metre sculpture, created by Monty MacMillan of Oromocto, N.B., to double its weight! Max MacNichols of Dorchester sent along the photo.
