Where is the Bird? A Photo Mystery Puzzle

Where is the bird? The bird is obviously perched on something in the air. So what's the mystery puzzle? The mystery has two parts. First, what exactly is the bird perched on and what is it attached to? Second, over what are the bird and its perch hanging?

At first I wasn't going to make a puzzle of this, but the more I looked at my photos, the more fun I thought it would be to see if you could guess. The big hint is that this is within walking distance of where I live in Paso Robles. It is at the very end of Oak Lane, the street where I shot my squirrel photos. In fact, I could see this (without the bird), from the very spot where I shot those photos. In fact, if you read all the comments on that post about the squirrel , you will find another hint to solving this puzzle, but you will have to read very carefully. I wrote it, and almost couldn't find it myself.

Don't cheat. make your guess before looking at any other comments.

When I look at the picture, I was thinking that the bird was on a wire or string.

Is that bird perched on a wire? electricity wire maybe.. am I correct?

It's on a bit more than a wire.

BarbRad wrote on February 17, 2015, 1:43 AM

I don't think it's an electric wire.

If that's not a wire (where birds from my place used to hang out) then maybe a stick? lol :)

I guess the bird perched on a tightened wire rope with one of its ends tying around a tree or a wire pole .

It's a tree branch on the left. The line on the right -- my guess is -- a guy wire. One way NOT to find out. Stand UNDER the bird. The answer might strike you...

It Is on a bridge cable over water. At least that is what I am seeing.

This is Guiness the Cat. I really don't care what it's ON. I want to come chase it OFF.

You're getting warm.

BarbRad wrote on February 17, 2015, 1:37 PM

I think that may be the proper term for what is supporting the bird. Do you know what the wire is supporting?

BarbRad wrote on February 17, 2015, 1:40 PM

You've got it. Except there is no water under the bridge. Did you, by any chance read the blog article I published this morning before you answered?

BarbRad wrote on February 17, 2015, 1:41 PM

That figures, Guiness. But that would not be necessary. It wouldn't stay on that wire more than a few seconds anyway.

I thought it looked like water so that meant a bridge which meant a cable. I did read your earlier post but did not go back to it before answering this one.

It looks like its on a wire over some water to me. I know you've already posted the answer, so now I'm all curious to go and look.

And you were very close to being right.
