Marsh Wren (Open Beak)
Marsh Wren with Open Beak
The trill of the Marsh Wren, a small brown bird with black and white streaking and a bold white eye stripe, is often heard throughout the tall reeds and cattails of the marshlands. The bird is carved with an open beak as if in song. Take a look in its beak to see that even the inside is carved. The male builds several globe-shaped nests with side doors. The female selects one and adds a lining of feathers and shredded plants.
The carving is 4 inches from beak to tail and is 2.75 inches high with an overall height of 4.75 inches.
All of our life-sized 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, feet are metal and base is wood.
