Johnny sat on a fence watching, with huge eyes, some crows with dive-bombing antics harassing a cat 3. With huge eyes, Johnny sat on a fence as he watched some crows harassing a cat with dive-bombing antics.

    You are correct on sentence structure.. When we look at #1 it is worded in such a way that the fence has huge eyes and the cat has dive-bombing antics. #3 is correct with the huge eyes belonging to Johnny, but the cat still has dive-bombing antics.
