The Red-Headed Woodpecker is the only woodpecker east of the Rocky Mountains with a completely red head. Its underparts are white contrasting sharply with its black upper feathers. It catches most of its food in flight but also stores acorns and nuts for the winter. The carving is mounted on a wooden tree stump.
The red headed woodpecker is 8" tall and the overall carving with the stand has a total height of 9."All of our life-sized 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.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed!
Another very nicely carved piece. It's great to have this terrific bird added to my collection. Well done!Duncan Brown
I am quite pleased with my purchase of this Red-Headed Woodpecker. The bird on the tree stump looks really natural.Michelle freshour
