Red Winged Blackbird
Red Winged Blackbird.
The majestic Red Winged Blackbird surprises when it reveals its bright red wing patch hidden under its black feathers. Found in fields, thickets and marshes, it will aggressively defend its territory from intruders. This is a very realistic carving that shows beautiful feathered details and is perched on a bamboo mount.
The bird measures 8.5 inches from beak to tail and is 5.5 inches high; including the mount it has an overall height of 10.75 inches. 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 texture and detail and painted with acrylic paint. The eyes are glass, feet are metal and base is wood.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
The carving beautifully evokes the live bird: painstakingly carved and painted, it merits a double-take (no,visitor, it's not real). Would have an aviary of these lovely birds if I had the room!Patricia Stehr
This red-winged blackbird is a spectacular piece. The feather detail is not just painted on but is actually carved in.Michelle freshour
The carving and painting is spectacular and at an excellent price. Emails are answered immediately and communication is excellent. I highly recommend the product and this company--you will not go wrong!Victor Groza
