Could this be a bird effigy? I've never found one before. NW Georgia find on our farm.

I believe it is now your bird effigy. Congrats!
OMG! You're serious? I'm so excited! I see things this shape alot and it wasn't until I watched a video on effigy's did I realize what they may be. I will start examining them more closely now. Thanks for quick response!

I knew my bubble would be burst when I woke up. Oh, well....what is it missing that makes you know it's not an effigy?

it is missing any signs that it was made to look that way. An actual example would be so obvious that you would not have to ask.

That one face is a fresh break, if it was a fully worked piece it would have the same patina all the way around and it’s a bit angular for a ground stone artifact.

Agree its not any relic shaped by native Americans.

It IS a good specimen to study how mannerization forms and looks on a rock from what it looks like in the photo.
