how convincing is this buffalo?

... obviously, to you or me, not at all: it's an absurd piece of Westernalia sitting outside a neighbor's house, made, I guess, of resin.  So it's more than a little surprising to find a bird sitting on its back, as though it were real.  On the other hand, this isn't an egret, picking - what is it that they pick?  Lice?  Bot-fly larvae? - little tasty treats from the animal host, but a towhee.  I've never thought that towhees were very smart, at all - this confirms it ...
