These are from a hibernaculum I stumbled upon this spring.

That thought occurred to me as well, although I cannot see what harm ravens would do to the poles other than dirty them with a bit of poo. I also was curious about the fate of the poles themselves. They've obviously been cut and are the smaller ends of much larger logs. Too small by far to be cut into lumber, but about the diameter of fence posts. However, it seems superfluous to take such trouble with poles to be used merely for fence posts. Perhaps being dried for firewood? Couldn't quite settle on the intended ultimate use for the poles. BTW There was a sign posted with some sort of registration number probably indicating legal ownership of the scaffolding and poles.
The structure looks like a fish drying rack. In which case, the owner might prefer that it not be covered in bird droppings.

Not for fish. Icelanders construct well-ventilated shed-like structures for drying fish, a waterproof roof but only skeletal walls. This is definitely driftwood drying support.

The chameleon is obviously a captive

Another view of a golden plover, one that picks up more of the yellow feathers responsible for its name.

Red-necked phalarope. Incessantly active little bird, constant spastic little head-jerking movements.

A small tropical frog that can be difficult to spot.
