Another Bird of Wood

Eastern Meadowlark

(Sturnella magna) is the newest carving finished just shy of the 2011 conclusion. It is carved from a piece of American Chestnut dating from the 1800's.  It was finished in such
way as to preserve each and everyone of the "worm" holes
usually present in wood from this almost extinct and former dominant American tree specie.The bird was fitted with cast pewter legs, glass eyes and was set on an old  piece of Locust post.
