Eurasian (Common) Kingfisher

 

The Eurasian Kingfisher (also known as the Common or River Kingfisher) is a small bird widely distributed throughout Europe, Asia and northern Africa.  Sporting brightly colored feathers with blue-green upperparts and rusty-orange underparts, it dives for fish that it locates with its eyesight that is adapted to seeing underwater, then spears it with its very long bill.  Known as the most colorful bird in Great Britain, the presence of a kingfisher means a high quality of clean, healthy water.  

The Eurasian kingfisher is 5.5 inches tall from its head to tip of its tail and the carving has an overall height of 8.5 inches.

All of our life-size birds are hand-carved from basswood (a very carveable wood that does not split and takes paint well), hand-feathered to show texture and detail and painted with acrylic paint. The eyes are glass and feet are copper.The base is wood.
