Sri Aman Bird Statues

Birds seems to be chosen as the mascot/symbol for Sri Aman town which is more famous for its Benak (tidal bore).

The most famous bird statue of the town is the dove statue, just in front of Hoover Hotel. However, in my recent visit here in December 2009, I notice the statue had been shifted from its adjacent original site to this roundabout.

This was the original site of dove statue taken in January 2009. I kind of like the original site as it was surrounded by a park and this made a perfect surrounding to take photos.

Another less prominent bird statue is located at the town's bus station. The bird statue here appear to be a rook. The town will be flocked with birds in the late evening and night. Their population kind of surprise me as I have no idea what attract them to this town.

Another dove statue is located inside the compound of the JKR building.
