Description

Great Blue Heron

Often called a "crane" the Great Blue Heron is the best-known heron in North America.  It is distinguished by its yellow bill and bluish-gray body and during the breeding season several long plumes adorn its crown.  The adult wingspan can reach up to 7 feet.  It feeds in grassy fields or marshy lands by standing still for long periods and then pierces fish or other animals with a lightning-fast thrust of its bill.

This exquisite carving of the Great Blue Heron is approximately quarter-size: the bird is 11 inches high, 12 inches from bill to tail and has an overall height of 12 inches.  All of our birds are hand-carved from basswood (a very carveable wood that does not split and takes paint well), hand-feathered to show detail and painted with acrylic paint. T!he eyes are glass, feet are metal and base is wood.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed!
