Putnam County resident Ted Yarhaus created the bird.
"I made the nest and wanted an eagle for it so we went to a ceramics class at TZ and I made the head," he said laughingly. "Somebody in the class had a pot they were going to throw away and I saw it would make a perfect body for my bird."
Yarhaus then found a black and white boa to wrap around the body and added some white feathers.
"We went to Big Lots and I found a boa left over from Halloween. It was perfect," he said.
Yarhaus created the bird and the nest for fun.
"Patrick Henry asks all who pass by to give a little toot-toot if they can see him from the highway," he said.
