The Pectoral Sandpiper inhabits prairie pools and tidal marshes during migration and the tundra during summer months. Found from Siberia to its winter habitats in South America this handsome shorebird has a dark back, rusty crown, heavy breast streaks that end abruptly and a long slender neck. This is an exceptionally beautiful carving!
The bird measures 9.5 inches from beak to tail, is 7.75 inches high and the carving has an overall height of 11 inches. All of our life-size birds are hand-carved from basswood (a very carvable wood that does not split and takes paint well), feathered to show detail and painted with acrylic paint. The eyes are glass, feet are metal and base is wood.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
Was thrilled with my discovery of this carver and, specifically, this bird. Beautifully crafted. (TheLynn Endres
