Here is a nice Larger Hand Carved Antique Style Virginia Influence Shorebird Decoy carved by my myself (Sam McKamie). It is carved with pocket knife and rasp from cedar after I did the initial sawing and drilling. This beach bird is of one piece construction of cedar with tack eyes, a hardwood bill, and the wings are relief carved and raised and split at the tail as shown in the pictures. This beach bird is painted in a gunning style like those decoys of old. Stand is included. This bird measures 13 3/4 inches long from the tip of the tail to the tip of the bill, 11 5/8 inches tall, and from 1 1/2 inch stock. It will make a fine addition to any collection. I gladly combine shipping at actual cost if more than the first bird. . Thanks for looking! sm
