Found throughout Canada and the United States the Red-Breasted Nuthatch will often eat from the human hand. It can be seen walking on the underside of tree branches or climbing up and down tree trunks often headfirst in search of a meal of insects. This beautiful carving is exquisitely painted with its soft blue-gray coloring and washed rusty chest.
All of our life-size 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. The eyes are glass, feet are metal and base is wood.
The carving of the red-breasted nuthatch measures 4 inches high, 3.5 inches from beak to feet, and has an overall height of 5.5 inches.

The red-breasted nuthatch that I received is very well carved but it is not the same pose as what is in the photograph above. (It is in a downward pose.) If you desire the nuthatch above make sure to indicate your preference to Susan.Duncan Brown
Excellent color and true to size. Realistic. Craftsmanship displays high quality and attention to detail.Dave Meyer
This nuthatch carving is unbelievable. GREAT detail !!! I have never seen better. I have gotten four of these little guys in my home. I would recommend this company without any reservation. First classTom Furrer
