Among the mussel- and barnacle-covered rocks of the Pacific Coast lives this stout shorebird with a gleaming reddish bill, yellow eyes, and pink/red legs. Apart from these highlights, their dark bodies—black on the head and neck, chocolate brown elsewhere—disappear into the dark rocky background. Look for them foraging on falling tides, when exposed marine organisms are vulnerable to quick strikes from their sharp, stout bills.
Entirely hand crafted from delicate carving to detailed painting and finishing with wax polish. Fairly traded using sustainable softwood and non toxic paints. Stands 9.5″. Designed in Canada
