This is a pair of folk art bird bottle stoppers I just finished today. The first is an American robin, and is 5.5 inches from tip of beak to tip of tail. The second is a crow or raven, and is 5.25 inches from tip of beak to tip of tail. Both are carved from basswood and painted with acrylic paints. As you can see, it is difficult to photograph a black object.
