Great Blue Heron on Weathered Wood
GREAT BLUE HERON ON WEATHERED WOOD
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 piercing fish or other animals with a lightning-fast thrust of its bill.
This exquisite carving of the Great Blue Heron is mounted on a piece of weathered wood selected from our collection. The heron is approximately quarter-size: the bird is 11 inches high, 12 inches from bill to tail and has an approximate overall height of 14 inches. All of our birds are hand-carved from basswood (a very carvable 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.

I received another carefully packaged carving. The detail and workmanship is beautiful. We have some property with a creek on it. I love seeing a Heron on the creek so when I saw this I had to have it. Thank you for sharing your work!Gale Rainwater
