Bird on a utilidor


These metal undulations belong to Inuvik's utilidor system; a pretty ubiquitous presence.

Are they a sewer system ?

What's that bird? Because I've never saw a bird like that in Poland

The utilidor's keep the sewer and water lines from houses warm so they don't freeze and burst in the winter.
The bird is known locally as a snow bird, they fly in large groups and are very small, also their feathers get darker as the weather gets warmer. They're very pretty.
I like the site, I think you captured Inuvik well.
