The Spotted Sandpiper with its richly spotted plumage is the most widespread, familiar and notable sandpiper in North and South America. Found anywhere near water throughout both continents, it can be recognized by its habit of teetering with its tail up and head down, a tottering gait and showy courtship dances. It feeds on insects and even small fish.
The Spotted Sandpiper carving is mounted on a moss-covered wood base and is sure to please shorebird fans. The bird is life-sized, carved from bass wood, hand-feathered to show detail and painted with acryllic paint. The eyes are glass, feet are copper and base is wood.
The bird measures approximately 7 3/4 inches from beak to tail, is 6 1/2 inches high from head to foot and has an overall height of 8 inches.
