The Varied Thrush is one of the most attractive thrushes due to its striking coloration. Its orange underparts, wing bars and eyebrows are set off by the contrast of its soft grey back feathers. Found in forests as well as suburban back yards, it spends much of its time on the ground. The male sings a mysterious and somewhat eerie melody and dines on caterpillars, berries and acorns.
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, the feet are metal and the base is wood.
The carving has an overall height of 6 inches; the bird itself is 9.5 inches from beak to tail and 4.75 inches high.
Your satisfaction is guaranteed!
