Bird-Form Gouge

Bird-Form Gouge - Artifact from Day's Knob Archaeological Site
Note the similarity of this sandstone implement's form to that of the large lime- stone bird figure below, on the opposite side of the hill.  Tools formed in at least an abstract bird shape are extremely common at this site, and this one is an excellent example.
