Please Notice
I am not taking orders at this time. After almost 30 years and nearly 10,000 creations I have decided to take time to enjoy my many other hobbies. Thanks for the long run.

Carved Wooden Shore Bird Decoys

My Bird woodcarvings are done in either basswood with distressed paint or yellow pine that has been "weathered". Many of them are based on antique hunting decoys. Some of the shore birds have square "cut" nails for the bill, just like many of those early decoys.

A while back I was contacted by Nancy Carol Willis, author and illustrator of Birdsong Books- natural science books for children. She had just finished a new book named "Red Knot: A Shorebird's Incredible Journey" and wanted to know if I could do a craving of a red Knot. How could I refuse! Be sure to look at her wonderful books at Birdsong Books . A pair of my red knots and a copy of her book (purchased from her) would make a great gift. The Red Knots are priced at $56 each or $105 for a pair.

*Many of these birds are my own design inspired by antique decoys. These antique decoys were meant to just "look like a bird". Because of that the colors of these birds could be altered without hurting their integrity. In other words if you wanted the "Rocker" painted the colors of the "Lesser Yellowlegs" that would be fine with me. Just let me know.
