To my amazement, someone identified the sculptor.

(Well done, Jennifer!)

For more about this incredible sculptor -- a Native American and Vietnam War veteran -- watch the terrific video below and also click here:

As for the bird species, I'm thinking it is a mythic bird, but perhaps there's no right or wrong answer.

P.S.: The statue will be saved. This might be my favorite Monday Morning Mystery ever.
